Sal Vulcano is a 40 years old American with Italian, Cuban, and Puerto Rican descent. Born in November 6, 1976 he was raised in New York City, borough of Staten Island. He was named “Salvatore Edward Anthony Vulcano”, but now he is better known as “Sal Vulcano”. He has three sisters, Kelly Ann, the eldest, and Dana and Jenna, his two younger sisters. Sal Vulcano is an actor, producer and improvisational and stand-up comedian. He attended “Monsignor Farrell High School” in Staten Island where he played various sports, including hockey, basketball, and football. He graduated from the same High School in 1994, and then he enrolled in “St. John’s University”, where he completed his studies in the financial field in 1998. He worked as a pizza delivery guy for a brief time before getting a job as a bartender at The Full Cup, a bar-pizzeria he then co-owned in 2010.
Sal Vulcano has been performing as a comedian since the late 90’s: passionate about stand-up comedy, he frequently did and does solo tours around the US, where he includes other comedians like Chris DiStefano, Godfrey and Big Jay Oakerson.
Sal was one of the four founding members of the “Tenderloins”, a comedy troupe that has been formed in 1991. The other members of the group were Joe Gatto, James Murray and Mike Boccio, later replaced by Brian Quinn. The members of the initial group got to meet each other during the freshman year at Monsignor Farrell High School: they were interested in drama and improvisation, so they joined an improvisation club.
The Tenderloins performed in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. They also participated in many festivals, like the San Francisco Sketch Comedy Festival and the Miami Improv Festival. Their sketches became famous on YouTube, and in 2008 they signed to develop a scripted comedy for Spike TV. After that the Tenderloins started starring in a popular TV series, the “Impractical Jokers”. This TV series is about four friends who always puts each other in absurd, funny situations, coercing one another to constantly do pranks in public while being filmed by a camera. For example, Sal faced punishment in an episode of Impractical Jokers: he was strapped, and he had to watch his sister getting officially married to James Murray, who happens to be his co-star. Sal is also germ phobic: another of his punishments has been to get really dirty, and seeing his reaction has been really hilarious. The show premiered on 15th December 2011, and it’s really loved by people for the huge entertainment it provides. It has also a spin-off called “Jokers Wild”.
Sal and Q (Brian Quinn) started hosting a podcast in April 2012, whose name is “What Say You?”. This podcast became very much popular, and later on it has been named the “Best New Show” at the “Stitcher Awards” in 2013. The podcast also got nominated for the best produced podcast, comedy and entertainment at the “Annual Podcast Awards” in the year 2015.
At present Sal has a net worth of four hundred thousand dollars. His bio speaks of his talents. He and with his troupe won the grand prize of NBC’s It’s Your Show worth hundred thousand dollars hosted by Carson Daly.
