The Impractical Jokers Confirm Suspicions About Filming Without Joe

“Impractical Jokers” will be returning with an extended special, and it will be the first episode without Joe Gatto since he announced his departure in December 2021. "We're doing the show together almost 10 years, we're friends 30 years, so it was tough to lose him,” Sal Vulcano told People.
The fact that the rest of the crew of "Impractical Jokers" remains the same helped the boys fall back into a rhythm. Vulcano added, "We're here to make a comedy, so if we can't get on set and be in good spirits and start laughing, then what are we doing?"
To fill the void left by Gatto, the show will now invite special guests to take part in the shenanigans. They don't plan on skimping on big-name guests either, with everyone from Rob Riggle to Method Man set to appear, according to the trailer for the show's upcoming new season.
