What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The practical jokes are meant to make fun of or embarrass cast members.
Positive Role Models
While the comedians/cast are good friends, the whole point is to embarrass one of the cast members with each of the pranks.
Violence & Scariness
No intentional physical harm, but pranks sometimes result in pratfalls and slips.

Sex, Romance & Nudity

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Impractical Jokers: After Party is a spin-off of the long-running reality comedy show Impractical Jokers, in which four friends try to embarrass one other by making one another do or say outlandish things in a public setting. Scenes take place in a tavern/bar, and people drink. The particpants sometimes curse (words like "damn" are heard; stronger words are bleeped), and you'll hear sexual innuendo and references to genitalia. After Party focuses on past Impractical Jokers seasons, with outtakes and behind-the-scenes and bonus footage that sometimes feature falls and slips as mishaps; no one is hurt, and it's not intentionally violent.
Is It Any Good?
Props have to be given to the troupe for pulling off these stunts and doing a solid job of selling the joke, but while there are humorous moments, sometimes the whole bit just falls flat. Improvisation is the key to the show, and the ability to change direction on the fly keeps the spotlighted cast member (the one spouting the lines fed by the other three) on his toes throughout a segment. Unfortunately, some of the jokes aren't quite as funny as the other cast members would suggest with their raucous laughter. There are, however, bright spots of humor, and while the conversations tread that fine line between appropriate and inappropriate, between witty and juvenile humor, keep in mind that the whole point is to embarrass one member of the troupe.
What sets After Party apart from the original show is that the cast reveals set-ups, backgrounds to the jokes, and tidbits from members of the crew who explain how the jokes were helped along. As a behind-the-scenes look back at previous episodes and pranks, After Party can be seen as a "best of" for fans of the series.
