An actor and stand-up comedian, in addition to retired United States Marine, Rob Riggle is known for his intense, berating comedy style. He’s appeared in countless works of comedy gold, including films like “The Hangover,” “Talladega Nights,” “The Other Guys,” “Step Brothers,” and “21 Jump Street,” as well as TV shows including “Arrested Development,” “The Office,” “New Girl,” and “Modern Family.”
Riggle appears in Season 9 of “Impractical Jokers,” kicking off an episode by joining the gang for a nice meal. The Jokers shower him with compliments, which he returns, remarking how he’s been a fan of the show for years. It appears he isn’t a fan of Sal, however, because rather than accepting Sal’s niceties, he relentlessly mocks and does unflattering impressions of him in classic Riggle fashion. While Sal starts off the episode with some burns from Riggle, it’s Murr who ends up wishing they never had him on the show, as Riggle is the mastermind behind Murr’s punishment this time around.
The punishment involves a murder mystery party, with Riggle at the helm as the strange lead detective on the case. Murr has to pose as an unclothed dead body at the party, and Riggle takes advantage of this in practically every way imaginable. Eventually, it’s revealed that Riggle was the murderer the whole time, and to exact his anger at being discovered, he gives a royal thong wedgie to a bare-butt Murr before exiting with a “Riggle out!” mic drop.
