Is Joe Gatto leaving Impractical Jokers?
On December 31, 2021, Joe Gatto announced via Instagram he is departing from his decade-long position on the television show.
"Sorry in advance for the long and more-serious-than-usual note below, I just wanted to let you all know that I will no longer be involved with Impractical Jokers," he captioned a black-and-white image of himself.
"However, due to some issues in my personal life, I have to step away. Bessy and I have decided to amicably part ways, so now I need to focus on being the best father and co-parent to our two incredible kids," the star continued, announcing he and his wife, Bessy, split up.
"To all of the amazing fans, thank you for allowing me to make you laugh with Jokers. They say that laughter is the best medicine, and I hope I’ve been able to provide some of that over the last decade," he continued.
"Seeing you laugh has been my own medicine, particularly in these weird and difficult times we find ourselves.
"As I work through the challenges I am facing, I hope to and am excited to create new ways to entertain you," the comedian concluded.
Gatto highlighted his relationship with his fellow Jokers, as well as thanking the remaining cast and crew of the show.
"Outside of my family, my relationships with Murr, Q and Sal have been the most important in my life," he wrote.
"I know they will continue to make the world laugh. And even though the four of us are the ones who you all see, this show is only possible due to the hard work of the talented crew members who work behind the scenes. I am very thankful to have worked with each and every one of them."
