When it comes to the stars of Impractical Jokers, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Joe Gatto, Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn, and James “Murr” Murray are all equally lovable and hilarious. But there is a huge difference between choosing who you like the most from the show, and choosing who is the best competitor on the show. And we’re here to give you the answer to the question you’ve likely been wondering for six seasons now: which Joker has “lost” the most episodes?
Drumroll please … It’s Ja Crispy who’s been punished more than anyone else on the show, a total of 52 times! Not far behind is everyone’s favorite human ferret, Murr, who — despite his “foolproof” plans — has been hit with a punishment 48 times. When you think back to how brutal the punishments have been (eyebrow shaving, nipple piercing, toe-licking…), those numbers are even more cringeworthy.
As for the other two, Joe previously told In Touch that Q has always been his biggest competition and is “unstoppable” when he’s in a good mood. “Q’s like a wild card because sometimes, he won’t do something that you thought he would do, and then he does stuff that you thought he wouldn’t do,” he said, adding that Murr and Sal are “so easy” to beat. But despite his competitiveness, Joe still reigns supreme. While Q has been punished 38 times, the father-of-two has only suffered 34 times.
Something tells us this is all about to change as the boys are currently filming Season 7 of the hit truTV show that will start airing in February 2018. Can’t wait until then for more comedy? Be sure to check them out on tour!
