BRICK – One of the “Impractical Jokers” made a special appearance at a local café this past weekend in Brick.

James Murray aka “Murr” from the popular prank show “Impractical Jokers” was at Local Café for a signing of his new novel Awakened on Oct. 14. Murray signed copies of his book and took pictures with members of the public who attended.

“The event was a big success. The line was well out the door and down the sidewalk for a large majority of the time. I’d say about 300+ people showed up during the 3 hours we were doing the signing,” said Sergio Rizzuto, owner of Local Café.

The café, located at 2950 Yorktowne Blvd. in Brick, opened up shop in January of this year and has been looking for good ways to get the word out about their business. Rizzuto noted this event was perfect for that.


“Murr was super friendly and took the time to talk to everyone, take photos and went up and down the line in between signing the books to keep people on line entertained while they waited,” he said.
