Making audiences laugh for nearly a decade can really work up a thirst. Maybe that’s why the Impractical Joker known simply as ‘Q’ is reviving a classic Staten Island Beer. Brian Quinn, who has starred on TruTV’s Impractical Jokers since 2011 has a new project that’s no joke. The former NYFD firefighter is breathing new life into the Rubsam and Horrmann brand of beer that was originally founded nearly 150 years ago in 1870.
From Thursday, July 12, 2018 through March 17th, 2019 the Staten Island Museum will be hosting an exclusive exhibit on the Impractical Jokers.
Now running for more than half a decade, the guys (…aka The Tenderloins: Sal, Q, Joe, and Murr) are bound to be recognized every now and then.
If you’re a frequent flier of This Way on Bay, you’ve more than likely spotted the Impractical Jokers popping up now and again. If you don’t know, the Impractical Jokers are a Staten Island comedy group consisting of four lifelong friends who try their best to embarrass each other on their truTV television show, which is going into its sixth season.
Podcasting has become a big deal in the past few years. Yeah, it’s still something that you can do from your bedroom. But similar to how anyone can have their own website, the best ones are still of a higher quality and consistently provide us with interesting content. You might not even realize that some of these great shows are produced right in your own backyard. So, with that in mind, here are 10 local podcasts (in no particular order) that all Staten Islanders should be checking out.
It’s throwback Thursday, so I thought I’d re-share one of the catchiest songs to come out of the Staten Island music scene in the last decade. “F For Effort” is a Les Vinyl track from the band’s “The Nafia EP.” Since it’s release in 2011, “F For Effort” has become the theme song for “What Say You Pod,” a podcast hosted by Impractical Jokers stars Sal Vulcano and Brian Quinn.
Back in 2013, Staten Island filmmaker, Geoff Celis, ran a successful Indiegogo campaign for a short film he had been thinking about for quite some time. Shortly thereafter, Geoff rounded up some of Staten Island’s funniest minds and best movie-makers and put his lucha libre comedy into the world. Last week, an online version of the film was put into the world wide web.
Let’s face it, these Islanders have a fierce sense of style. We have spent the past few days looking into politicians, actors, singers, socialites, and TV Personalities alike to compile this list so that you can take a look into their fashion sense. In no particular order, let us begin.
