WarnerMedia’s TNT, TBS and truTV are blowing up winter holiday cheer with marathon rollouts of classic holiday movies and TV show episodes throughout December.

On Dec. 17, truTV will feature a new “Impractical Jokers: Dinner Party” episode, celebrating holiday meals and memories.

Impractical Jokers: The Movie stars James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn, Joe Gatto, and Sal Vulvano, also known as the comedy troupe The Tenderloins, playing themselves in a fictional story of a humiliating high school mishap from the early ’90s. Featuring appearances from Paula Abdul, Jaden Smith, and Joey Fatone, the movie combines the fictional narrative with real life footage of over-the-top punishments and callbacks to classic moments from the series. Once the Impractical Jokers hit the road, they compete in hidden camera challenges for the chance to turn back the clock and find redemption.
