Carl & Darren chat to James ‘Murr’ Murray, a star of Tru TV and Comedy Central’s hit show, Impractical Jokers. His first novel, AWAKENED, is slated for release next year.

Murr joined us for a chat about the book, and his inspiring story of never giving up hope of having it published after over a decade. 

He discussed several stories unheard by his Impratical Joker fans,  about how he came to write a book, the history behind it, and his inspirations. 

We closed up with Murr discussing some of his favourite Staten Island ghost stories and urban legends.

After years of waiting, New York’s newest subway line is finally ready, an express train that connects the city with the burgeoning communities across the Hudson River. The shining jewel of this state-of-the-art line is a breathtaking visitors’ pavilion beneath the river.  Major dignitaries, including New York City’s Mayor and the President of the United States, are in attendance for the inaugural run, as the first train slowly pulls in.

All the train’s cars are empty.

All the cars’ interiors are drenched in blood.

There’s something living beneath New York City, and it’s not happy we’ve woken it up.
