Impractical Joker, Joe Gatto is the gutsy guy

Updated on August 17, 2013

Impractical Joker, Joe Gatto


Joe Gatto, The Guy With the Most Guts

This guy is so fearless its scary! He seems to have no problem saying embarrassing things to people, or performing stunts that most of us will never face except in out worst nightmares, such as sitting on a toilet in front of a room full of people who are eating. Impractical Joker, Joe Gatto was instructed by his friends to sit on the toilet, with his pants down in a deli, open the door and ask the patrons in the entire establishment for some toilet paper, because he lost the most challenges that he and Sal,Murr, and Q performed throughout the show. Joe is Sal's opposite. Whereas Sal shows his emotion, Joe performs his challenges like a robot. He seems to have no fear, or self consciousness. Whereas one may feel a little nervous for Sal during particularly awkward challenges, due to Sal seeming like a sweet guy who does not really belong with these four, one feels more at ease due to the fact that Joe has an innate ability to know when and how to push the envelop, and when to simply back away with his life intact.

However, I have also found a conflicting emotion that one may feel worried for Joe because he is liable to say just about anything and get killed for it. So far- so good, Joe is still with us and ready for their return.

Joe Gatto Promotes "Larry"

Joe Gatto and Larry, Sal and Irene

Impractical Jokers is responsible for launching mysterious inside jokes such as "Larry". In a few early episodes Joe Gatto threw the name "Larry" out during some of his challenges, and it caught on. Fans tweeted and facebooked the Impractical Jokers, demanding to know who Larry is. Shirts, mugs, and various jokes in the New York streets now feature "Larry!"

Another name Impractical Jokers launched was "Irene." This name is now constantly googled, tweeted, and facebooked by fans who want to know who Irene really is. The guys have said that in this case there really is no Irene, its just a name that they throw around. On the very first episode that aired Murr was talking on his cell phone and trying to sit on a strangers towel without being kicked off, and the phantom person on the other end of the phone was "Irene." This went by unnoticed by Jokers fans, but when Sal was trying to have people sign a petition "against that bitch Irene", it brought the house down and now everyone was interested in knowing who Irene was, and could it be the ex girlfriend of one of the jokers.

The Jokers have an aptitude for stirring the pot and creating catch phrases that grow like wildfire after the Impractical Jokers mention them but a few times.

      Thank you too John. I think that knowing they are getting paid for these antics must help, however, I would be willing to bet that they must get a sick feeling in their stomach while doing it. Imagine the tons of footage of deleted parts that we don't see. The nightmares they experience must be awful. But Joe is a classic :)

      i would say you are correct. i am a fan of the show and i'd have to say some of the things joe does is classic.

      i wonder if knowning you're on a tv showing getting paid to do these things makes it easier to do?

      thanks for sharing.
