Thursday nights are about to get a little more boring — the Impractical Jokers Season 6 finale is just days away! At least fans are in for a great last laugh with the Jokers, judging by what Joe Gatto tells In Touch exclusively.

The truTV prankster is opening up about the final episode of the year, revealing that it will be called “GI Jokers.” And yes, that title means what you think — it will include army challenges. “The finale is coming up and it’s military-themed, so we give back to the troops a little bit,” he teases in an exclusive interview with In Touch. “The challenges are military-themed and the punishment is very bad, but we had fun doing that.”

Viewers should make sure to watch through the end of the show, as the final moments will feature an exciting twist. Joe continues, “There’s definitely a big surprise in store for fans at the very end of the show, which is something we’ve wanted to do for a while. We were actually able to pull it off with the help of the military.”

The 41-year-old wouldn’t share any more information about what exactly this surprise will be, though he did say it’s been a long time coming. In fact, it’s an idea they came up with two years ago! “It’s definitely something people will remember that we’ve done,” he explains. “It started as an idea a long time ago, and we thought we’d never be able to do that.”

Part of the reason they were able to pull it off years later is that they now had the military on their side. Joe gushes, “It would be impossible to do without the military and you’ll see in the last couple of minutes of the show.” Sounds like it’s a can’t-miss moment, so be sure to set your DVRs Nov. 2 at 9 p.m. ET!
