Career as an actress
Jenna’s brother Sal launched the “Impractical Jokers” hidden camera reality series with The Tenderloins comedy troupe in 2001, with the help of his high school friends Brian Quinn, James Murray and Joe Gatto (members of The Tenderloins). The comedy troupe was created in 1999 but it did not gain much recognition until they won the “It’s Your Show” NBC competition in 2007.
Jenna gained recognition after her brother began featuring her in his comedy series, especially after she appeared in the “Strip High Five” episode, doing pranks with her brother and his friends. The second episode she appeared in was “Down in the Dump” in 2013, which showed Jenna kissing Brian Quinn who was naked. After that, she was featured in the “Brother-in-Loss” episode in which Jenna married James Murray at a huge ceremony, while her brother was tied and forced to watch… all a prank of course.
Before she featured in “Impractical Jokers”, Jenna was a co-ordinator and a receptionist, while she is currently working as a medical receptionist in her hometown. “Impractical Jokers” counts eight seasons and more than 200 episodes (plus 30 specials) and has been airing on truTV since December 2011. The show has mostly received praise from both its fans and critics. Linda Stasi, a writer for “The New York Post”, described the show as ‘possibly the funniest, most ridiculous show I’ve seen in years’.
Love life and boyfriend
Jenna began dating James Murray, an American author and a producer, not long after she made her first appearance in her brother’s comedy series. They dated for around one year before marrying in 2014, however, the marriage was only a prank played on Sal as the two divorced on the same day they married. Jenna and James were dating until 2017, and she still refers to him as her husband on her social media accounts. Before James, Jenna was in a relationship with a man known as Famous Shamus, who is the Auto Group Service advisor; Jenna is currently unattached.
James was dating Tara before Jenna but the two split before he was cast to appear in “Impractical Jokers”. He is suffering from acrophobia which is an irrational fear of heights and from ailurophobia which is a fear of sharks. As an author, he has co-written the “Awakened” science fiction horror novel. James is currently engaged to Melyssa Davies, after he asked her to marry him in July 2019.
