Jenna Vulcano’s Brother, Sal Vulcano Short Bio
Born Salvatore Edward Anthony Vulcano on 6 November 1976, in New York City, USA, he went to Monsignor Farrell High School where he met Joseph Gatto, James Murray and Brian Quinn.
The four of them were a part of the high school’s Improvisation Club, honing their comedic skills. After matriculating, Sal enrolled at St. John’s University, from which he obtained his degree in 1998.
The group of four friends dissolved the end of high school, but reunited after Sal’s college graduation. They would meet up at Joe Gatto’s house where they would practice various improvised comedic situations. After a while, they formed the comedy sketch troupe Tenderloins, and in 1999 headed on a tour across the US. Since then, they’ve become one of the most praised comedy groups, launching the “Impractical Jokers” show, which premiered on 15 December 2011 on TruTV.
They have recorded over 250 episodes, and recently won the MTV Movie + TV Award for Best Comedy/Game Show.
Sal and the rest of the group have become known for the punishments meted out between them after losing a challenge, or revenge for a previous prank, which even includes Jenna’s wedding to Brian Quinn. In addition, Sal and the others created two TV specials, “Impractical Jokers Practically Live Tour Special” (2015) and “Impractical Jokers: One Night at the Grand” (2016), plus the film “Impractical Jokers: The Movie” (2020).
According to authoritative sources, Sal Vulcano’s net worth has been estimated to be over $7 million.
In regards to his personal life, he’s rumored to be married to Francesca Muffaletto, however, this rumor hasn’t been confirmed, and could well be another practical joke!. He even came out as gay back in 2014, but that was yet another of the troupe’s pranks. Nevertheless, until he comes out with more truthful information, we can only make guesses.
Sal is suffering from several phobias, including germophobia, ailurophobia, and acrophobia.
He is an ordained minister and has officiated Joe Gatto’s wedding ceremony.
He is the most punished guy within the Tenderloins troupe – some of his punishments include a tattoo of Jaden Smith on his left thigh, but also being renamed Prince Herb, among other punishments.
