Sal Vulcano is one quarter of The Tenderloins, the comedy troupe at the heart of the truTV show Impractical Jokers, which has been on air since 2011. If you’ve somehow never seen it before, the series follows Vulcano and his longtime friends James Murray, Joe Gatto, and Brian Quinn as they compete to be the last man standing in public practical joke challenges.
Examples include cutting in line in ludicrous ways, soliciting for hilariously fake charities, and even straight-up insulting strangers, just to see what happens.
The results are always awkward, but the Joker has to do it, the loser faces punishment, and that’s almost always worse.
The gang’s friendship must be pretty ironclad for them to still be pals after regularly tormenting each other over the course of a decade. How did it all come together? This time, let’s focus on Sal Vulcano, and see what he was doing before Impractical Jokers took off.
Born in 1976 in Staten Island, New York, Salvatore “Sal” Vulcano is the only brother to three sisters Kelly Ann, Diane, and Jenna, the last of whom has actually appeared on Impractical Jokers and even married Murray as a prank.
Sal’s parents, Sal Vulcano Sr. and Dianne Fernandez-Vulcano, divorced when he was very young. Between them, Vulcano has Italian, Cuban, and Puerto Rican roots.
Vulcano’s fate as a comedian began to take shape when he was a teenager in the 90s, when he began attending the private Monsignor Farrell High School. There, Vulcano participated in several sports, was a member of the chess club, and in his junior year joined the school’s improv club, where he met the other three men that would in adulthood become his best friends and co stars.
Unlike the reputation they cultivate on screen, Vulcano and the other boys are remembered as being rather respectful young men in high school, a fact they often bring up themselves as a reason why they never perform pranks too out-of-line.
