Brian Quinn has broken his silence on Joe Gatto’s shock exit from the Impractical Jokers.
The comedian, who is referred to as ‘Q’ by fans, admitted in a recent episode of his Tell Em Steve-Dave podcast that he ‘didn’t necessarily see it coming’.
Quinn said: “He’s a friend. I’m not going to talk about his personal life, which is clearly where he’s gone to dwell now. It is what it is.”

Elsewhere in the podcast, the 45-year-old opened up about how Impractical Jokers will now work with just him, James ‘Murr’ Murray and Sal Vulcano.
As there will be one less joker, he said that it will be ‘almost like a new show,’ with the traditional formation potentially getting reformatted.
Talks about how Impractical Jokers will now work all began when Gatto confirmed on December 31 that he was leaving the show due to issues in his ‘personal life’.
In the Instagram announcement, the dad-of-two revealed that he and his wife, Bessy, were separating.
He said: “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.”
Gatto then went on to thank his co-stars for being the ‘most important’ people in his life, ‘outside’ of his family.
He continued: “Outside of my family, my relationships with Murr, ‘Q’ and Sal have been the most important in my life. I know they will continue to make the world laugh.
“And even though the four of us are the ones who you all see, this show is only possible due to the hard work of the talented crew members who work behind the scenes. I am very thankful to have worked with each and every one of them.”
