The guys of truTV’s Impractical Jokers have been pulling pranks and embarrassing each other since their days in high school — but what were Joe Gatto, James Murray, Sal Vulcano, and Brian Quinn actually like during those glory days? Surprisingly, not class clowns!
“We didn’t get class clowns because we went to an all boys school and there were a lot more people that were worse than us, as far as that one,” Joe told In Touch exclusively during a Facebook Live interview last summer.

“Murr was the Salutatorian, which means the second smartest person in school, which also means the first place loser,” he added, jokingly. “I was really nerdy in high school. I was on the math team, I was a Mathlete.”
Joe was not only interested in math, but also sports, and was a proud member of his school’s bowling team. “I’m a bowler,” he added. “Most likely to succeed was my thing. I was getting that. People thought I was most likely to succeed in everything,” he continued.
And succeed he did! It was recenty revealed that Impractical Jokers is not only renewed for Season 8, but the hilarious foursome will also star in their first feature film together.
How big are reality star salaries? Jason Tartick breaks it down with Us Weekly editors.
“The Jokers’ authentic friendship and genuine relatability has endeared them to millions of fans around the world, creating one of the most original brands in all of television,” said Chris Linn, president of truTV.
Needless to say, these guys have come a long way — scroll through to see their awesome high school throwback photos!
