We told you earlier this week that James Murray, a.k.a. "Murr" from the "Impractical Jokers" was going to be stopping in East Moline. For those hoping it would be closer, hold up!

Two new stops have been announced on what his team calls "a hilarious hangout with your favorite Joker at your favorite venue", including one in Cedar Rapids at the Paramount Theatre. Tickets are on sale this Friday, July 23, at 10 a.m. for the Paramount show on Thursday, September 9 at 7:30 p.m. Use the Paramount Theatre website to secure tickets and learn more.

In addition, folks in Dubuque get their chance to see him 2 days later, Saturday September 11 at the Five Flags Arena. Like the Cedar Rapids show, tickets go on sale this Friday, July 23 at 10 a.m. Get information and tickets through the Five Flags Arena website and box office, as well as through Ticketmaster.

Check out the description of the show from the Paramount Theatre website:

Come celebrate the summer with Murr and share LOTS of laughs! Murr will answer fan questions, show off his own personal never-before-seen videos/photos, give behind-the-scenes insights, and tell stories from the set of Jokers.

Fans of Impractical Jokers won't want to miss it but it will be a treat for newcomers to the brand of comedy featuring one of the "four lifelong friends who compete to embarrass each other".

Lobby doors at the Paramount open at 6:30 the night of the show, and house doors at 7 for the show at 7:30.
