You know James Murray from the hilarious antics on Impractical Jokers, right? Well, turns out, that his real-life love story is just as awesome!
So, James, aka “Murr,” met his sweetheart, Melyssa, back in 2018 at a party celebrating his first book. It was like lightning struck—love at first sight! James never saw himself tying the knot until he met Melyssa. He was smitten from the get-go.
Their engagement? Oh, it’s a good one! They planned this romantic proposal in Turks and Caicos, but Hurricane Dorian crashed that plan. Quick thinker that he is, James popped the question right at their new home with a cozy picnic and a game of Scrabble. Melyssa said yes, and off they went on their journey as a married couple.
Moving to Princeton, New Jersey, was a whole new adventure for them, especially with the pandemic throwing everything out of whack. But you know what? It brought them closer together. And their wedding? Happened against all odds on September 25, 2020, with Joe Gatto from Impractical Jokers as the officiant. Love triumphed over tough times!
Post-wedding, they jetted off to the Maldives for a dreamy honeymoon at Soneva Jani. And Melyssa? She’s a riot on social media, often teaming up with James for some comedy gold. Plus, they’re super into being pet parents to their furball, Penelope Murray.
Melyssa’s got this cool business, No. 95, selling special candles and home goodies. Oh, and they recently nailed a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s research, a cause super close to their hearts because of James’ dad.
Their story? It’s more than just funny pranks on TV. James and Melyssa show that real love and connection are the real deal, no jokes about it!
