Quarantining at home can drive anyone barking mad, so “Impractical Jokers” star Joe Gatto found something to focus on — his dogs.
The eight cuddly canines, almost all of whom are named after Italian sweets, are the inspiration behind his new book, “The Dogfather: My Love of Dogs, Desserts and Growing Up Italian,” out Wednesday on Amazon.
Gatto, 44, has been mostly stuck at home on Long Island since coronavirus shut down production on his TruTV hidden camera show.
“I was at home with my family and have a house full of puppies, and my cousin mentioned that with all the stories I have about my dogs, it might be a cool opportunity to make a memoir of sorts,” the comedian told the Daily News of the self-published book. “So it was a really fun quarantine project to conquer during these crazy times.”
