Y’all realize the rating is TV-14? You’re five year old obviously shouldn’t be watching. I absolutely hate the “Karen’s” over here berating the show and calling it horrible because they don’t know how to read ratings. The show is one of my favorites. It’s meant for adults, bye Karen’s

No way I want my kids watching this and thinking this kind of behavior is ok. I spend my time teaching my kids that we should care about others. I am doing my best to teach them to encourage and lift others as well as being willing to put others ahead of ourselves. This show couldn't be any further from that message.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (21 ):
Kids say (41 ):

Impractical Jokers features lots of awkward moments as the comedians engage in weird behavior or repeat lines that range from silly to offensive. But, thanks to the talented and experienced cast's ad libbing and comedic timing, there are some genuinely funny moments. The reactions of unsuspecting people will make you chuckle, too.

Some of the humor can be a bit risqué, but ultimately the antics are designed to challenge the cast rather than poke fun at their victims. Teens and adults who like hidden-camera shows will find something here to like.
