SDCC 2018: Impractical Jokers takeover Petco Park for its annual block party


Fans of the hit truTV show Impractical Jokers were in for a major treat on Saturday, July 21st where the cast and crew celebrated its annual block party – only at San Diego Comic Con. Badge holders and non-badge holders alike were welcome to enter the arena for a day full of free food, free soft drinks (courtesy of Mountain Dew), games, and one-on-one interaction with the jokers themselves!

The party itself took place from 1pm – 9pm with special appearances by James Murray, Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn, and Joe Gatto running through the crowds to interact with their fans. Throughout the event, different festivities took place either on stage or somewhere nearby. Fans were treated to a White Castle food truck giving out free meals or stood in line to take on the epic sumo area to battle it out with their companions.

From 4:30 pm – 6 pm, the jokers had a special signing for attendees and soon after, there was a live stream of a Q&A session with the four followed by a screening of an upcoming episode. For those who weren’t able to see it, the new episode will be premiering August 2 on truTV.

And like this year, TruTV did not lack on the giveaways! Attendees went home with not only great memories to keep for years to come but also received pins, cardboard cutouts of their head in the shape of a fan, and free popcorn (snack was courtesy of new TV show Bobcat Goldthwait’s Misfits & Monsters).

The Impratical Jokers movie will be coming soon. Until then, you can catch them on the truTV network through 2019.
