The 'Impractical Jokers' are performing at the Minnesota State Fair this year

The Beach Boys were also added to the lineup on Monday.

Not only do the stars of TruTV's "Impractical Jokers" do their best to embarrass each other on an episode-to-episode basis, but they also do stand-up comedy as "The Tenderloins" and they're bringing that show to the Minnesota State Fair this summer. 

The funny foursome includes Brian Quinn, Sal Vulcano, James Murray and Joe Gatto, and they'll be on the Grandstand stage Friday, Aug. 30 at 8 p.m. 

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. and they run for $50 or $60, with the more expensive tickets eating up the first 42 rows of seats. 

If you're in the State Fair fan club you'll get first dibs with a pre-sale this Wednesday at 10 a.m., and there's a deal for Friend of the Fair members beginning Thursday at noon. 

The Beach Boys

The State Fair also announced that The Beach Boys and special guest The Righteous Brothers will take on the Grandstand Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 8 p.m. 

Tickets are just $38.50 and they come with a free download of lead singer Mike Love's new album, "Unleash The Love." 

The only pre-sale for this show is Thursday at 12 p.m. and it's only for Friend of the Fair members. 

No word yet if Mike Love's nephew, ex-Wolves star Kevin Love, will be there. But probably not because nobody in Minnesota likes him anymore. 

Grandstand lineup so far

  • Aug. 23: Naill Horan with Maren Morris
  • Aug. 24: Sugarland
  • Aug. 27: The Beach Boys
  • Aug. 28: Jason Mraz
  • Aug. 30: Impractical Jokers
