So here’s something fun about writing on the Internet for a living. Sometimes, people send you places to cover various events where you often see some pretty great things. Hell, you can even write off most of the expenses you have to cover during the night out on your taxes. It’s like getting paid to drink and watch movies.
What I’m getting at is, chew on that shit next time you leave a comment about how every “blogger” is just a fat 14-year-old who spends all their time on the computer in their mother’s basement. We get out of mom’s basement all the time.
It was during just this kind of adventure that I had the pleasure of checking out an advanced screening of the upcoming TruTV show Impractical Jokers (premiering 12/15 on TruTV). And I return with good news…the show is hilarious! Hilarious enough that I just wrote this up as a straight ahead endorsement as opposed to slyly hiding clips of the show in a much broader post, thereby masking the fact that you can get me to talk about pretty much anything with the promise of free drinks.
But hey, don’t take my word for it, check out these clips and see how funny it is for yourself…
Not only is the show funny, but the guys who make up the Impractical Jokers team are all around good people. I had the pleasure of chatting with all of them after the preview. They’re just a group of friends from Staten Island who hope to entertain you. Just like the Wu-Tang Clan, basically.
So give the show a chance. I only ask because it’s funny stuff and I think you’ll enjoy it. Trust me, if I thought otherwise, I’d tell you. And I wouldn’t have to give a single one of those free drinks back.
