Joe Gatto one of the stars of the TruTv franchise series Impractical Jokers is leaving the comedy troupe after a ten year run.
“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 wrote. “Alongside my friends, I’ve devoted a decade of my life to building this franchise and couldn’t be prouder of what has been accomplished. 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.
How Gatto’s departure affects the future of the group is as yet unknown but the stars recently had their popular show renewed for a tenth season.
