Best of Impractical Jokers ‘The Name Game’

Over the years, the jokers and their writing team have come-up with the most ridiculous names you could imagine.

Most of the names come into life through the ‘The Name Game‘ challenge where the jokers are expected to call out them out in receptions without laughing. The joker with the most laughs loses the challenge. Unsurprisingly, Sal is terribly disadvantaged here.

The most instantly recognizable of these names, its poster child if you will, is none other than Cranjis McBasketball.

Admittedly, the name has long since fallen into overuse since its first showing in the first episode (Hellcopter) of Season 5. The context was a reception as usual, however the challenge wasn’t ‘The Name Game’.

The first-ever challenge of that type would instead come later in the fifth episode (Browbeaten) of Season 6. Oddly, by Season 9 ‘The Name Game’ has since been renamed into Cranjis McBasketball.

In remembrance of its untimely death, here is a throwback of some of the most memorable and funniest names ‘The Name Game’ challenge has given us to date.
