Since its debut in 2011, Impractical Jokers has become the millennial answer to Candid Camera and amassed an impressive cult following in the process. And even though these four pranksters are pretty much the epitome of what-you-see-is-what-you-get, there are still some surprising secrets lurking behind the scenes of Impractical Jokers. Like any reality show, it takes a little show-biz magic to make what you see on the screen appear so real and light and effortless.

Joseph "Joe" Gatto, James "Murr" Murray, Brian "Q" Quinn, and Salvatore "Sal" Vulcano met back in high school in Staten Island, NY. Over the years, they perfected their act, and have always worked as a true ensemble. "It's the four of us and we've been friends so long. None of us are really singled out as like, the star of the show," Q once told Complex. "Nobody's in anybody's shadow." But that's just one secret of the group's success.
