Stage Fright is the twenty-fourth episode of Season Five of Impractical Jokers and the one-hundredth-twenty-fifth episode overall. It aired on October 20, 2016.


The jokers work at a pawn shop, try to give free hugs after incredibly bizarre apologies, and then complete designated tasks while riding the Roosevelt Island Tramway.


No Pawn Intended

Goal: Do and say what you're told.
Loser: Sal and Q

Hug It Out

Goal: Get someone to hug you.
Loser: Joe and Q

Tram Wreck

Goal: Complete the task before the tram ride ends.
Loser: no one.


Loser: Q
Punishment: Before becoming a comedian/actor, Q was originally a fire-fighter for the FDNY (New York City Fire Dept.). Q has to perform a musical number during a play, but ends up being embarrassed in front of the people he used to work with in the New York City Fire Department. Q later gets revenge for this, along with the huge mess in his Jeep, in Training Day.


The challenge Tram Wreck is sometimes cut from the Loser Board when this episode airs, including that of the Inside Jokes version.
