Joe Gattos ‘Impractical Jokers’ Exit ‘Shocked’ Me

Breaks his silence. Brian “Q” Quinn addressed Joe Gatto‘s Impractical jokers exit for the first time, almost two weeks after the news came.

“The only thing I want to say, this is new information, is that I was f-king shocked when I also found out,” the former firefighter, 45, said during Monday, Jan. 10, the episode of his ” Tell Em Steve-Dave “podcast with Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson. “I did not necessarily see it coming. He’s a friend, and I do not want to talk about his personal life, which is clearly where he has gone now. That’s what it is. “

The New York native remarked that he, James “Murr” Murray and Salt Volcano was “back at work,” saying, “At first we did not even know – ‘Is it worth doing without Joe at all?’ But you just look at it and yes, [it is]. I will not stop doing that. If I left the show, I would not want the guys to stop just because I left. There are so many negative things about Joe not being there. We’re losing a comic powerhouse. “

The comedian added that there is “nothing” to do but “accept” the new reality and “give [themselves] permission to have fun. “

He explained: “When I first got through that feeling, it’s been an off-king blast. It’s almost like a new show now. Isn ‘t that weird? He was so instrumental behind the scenes, and it’s just gone now, so it’s a new vacuum.You can only fill parts of it here, everywhere.The show, it’s getting a little weirder.I’m able to get a little more of my s – t [in]. “

Gatto, also 45, announced via Instagram in December 2021 that he was leaving the TruTV show – as well as being divorced from his wife, Bessy Gatto.

“I just wanted to tell you all that I will no longer be involved with the Impractical Jokers,” the Tenderloins member wrote at the time. “Together with my friends, I have devoted a decade of my life to building this franchise and could not be more proud of what has been achieved. But because of some problems in my personal life, I have to walk away. Bessy and I have decided to break up amicably, so now I need to focus on being the best father and co-parent of our two incredible children.

Bessy, 39, added in her own post: “With love and respect we have decided to separate. Although we will no longer be a couple, we will always be a family for our beautiful children and we look forward to being parents together. We kindly ask you to respect our privacy as we navigate this new chapter together. And of course we will continue to help animals and rescue dogs, which is something we are both passionate about! ”

In a TikTok video a week later, the mother of two raised her hand when asked to show the “broken” object in her house, “which everyone just accepts and lives with.”
