We thought it might be appropriate among our whiskey drinking crowd to let Murr share some suggestions on how to play the best pranks and get away with them in everyday life.

Murr also tells us how these four lifelong high school friends from New York- Joe, Q, Sal and himself  formed The Tenderloins and their adventures in creating Impractical Jokers on TruTV.

While  Murr and Joe Gatto don’t drink, Sal and Q are Bourbon fans.

Listen to how Joe uses nights out in the clubs and bars as a character study for drunkenness AND to see how much he can get away with.

As the Tenderloins are on tour now, check out the tour dates across the country.

This week they will be in Sioux City Iowa and Evansville, Indiana!

Also watch out video clips from Impractical Jokers that are referenced in our interview below.

The Tenderloins have their own podcast show check it out here.
