Dear Tenderloins from Staten Island, Impractical Jokers, a quartet of the funniest men in the world... you are literally the best. What could I do without you guys?
When your show started becoming a hit, I gave y'all a try. I thought you guys were hilarious, with a little twist of inappropriate every now and then. It's okay, I liked that. I thought it was funny when it was happening to other people, and they would have no clue.
Then, you guys gained fame, and then you gained more of my attention and more of my time. You were on my TV constantly; there was no other show I would rather watch. "Impractical Jokers" are on? Great! Any other truTV show is on? Not so great. No offense, Michael Carbonaro.
My boyfriend and I have this thing where we sit and watch the Jokers for hours on end, and we never get bored. It will always be our thing. You guys keep us laughing and smiling.
Each season got funnier and better. The punishments became crueler and longer. The pranks were more ballsy, and still, to this day, some people do not know who the four of you are.
As I write this, I am watching you guys on TV. It's Sunday, and it's a marathon until about two in the morning. When you are on my screen, everything is a little better than it was. Life is good, and I'm content.
Jokers, I hope you know.
I really hope you know the impact you have on a giant audience. You have fans in the U.S. and the U.K. who absolutely adore you. I'm one of those fans. You have the power of comedy in your hands. You make people laugh, and laughter is the best medicine.
Me? I love laughter. It's the best cure for anything, and you guys fit the bill. When I laugh, I'm good. I'm happy.
Whenever I am in the worst mood and I want nothing to do with the world around me, I turn to a lot of things, especially you guys. I can turn on my TV and want to scream into a pillow until my lungs give out, but you guys would stop me from doing so. My frown turns upside down even in the slightest because of your talent to make people feel good, to create laughter.
I could talk about you guys all day, and again, some people would still not know who you are. It doesn't make sense. You've become so well-known and famous in the past few years that I can't even believe that people have a hard time recognizing you. Even though truTV isn't as popular as the other channels on screen, your show is the most popular and most enjoyable on that channel.
Jokers, I hope you know.
I hope you realize that you are one of the reasons why I am getting through college okay. No one will believe me when I say it. Laughter gets me through anything. When I am in a giant rut, I get stressed. But one of my stress relievers is this show. I have had my fair share of rough times throughout college, but guess what? You're there.
I've seen you guys live, and I don't think I've laughed so hard in my life. My boyfriend and I had ourselves a good time because you were absolutely hilarious. I recommend your show to everyone because it's true that I almost fell out of my seat.
Joe, Sal, Q, and Murr, I hope you know that you are the best.
Thank you so much for all you do, and please continue doing what you're doing. You never fail me.
From, a beloved fan.
