Since Impractical Jokers hit our screens in 2011, it has been a constant source of laughs and gags. And now it’s on Netflix!
Impractical Jokers took over the pranking and forfeit-style comedy shows as the less obscene and way less dangerous younger sibling of Jackass. But despite the show’s milder nature, it’s still as hilarious.
Of the four Jokers on the show, Sal Vulcano always takes the rap and has had most punishments out of any of The Tenderloins – the name of their comedy troop.
Here is everything you need to know about Sal, from his family bio and education to career and net worth. Plus, we couldn’t forget to include some of Sal’s worst punishments on the show… prepare yourself for some horrendous tattoos!
Meet Sal Vulcano…
Salvatore Edward Anthony Vulcano – known as Sal to all – was born on November 6th, 1976 in Staten Island, New York.
Sal was born to Sal Sr. and Adele Vulcano, who divorced when he was young. Sal Sr has since married a woman called Dianne Fernandez-Vulcano.
He also has an elder sister Kelly Ann and two younger sisters Diana and Jenna. If you’re a real fan of Impractical Jokers, you might recognise Jenna as she has starred in three episodes of the show!
His family is of Italian, Cuban and Puerto Rican descent.

Sal Vulcano: Bio
It was quite sometime before 42-year-old Sal Vulcano ventured into the world of comedy as a fulltime career.
He graduated from Monsignor Farrell High School in 1994 before attending St Johns University. Sal obtained a degree in Finance and graduated in 1998.
It was while at Monsignor that he met the rest of The Tenderloins troupe, which includes Joseph ‘Joe’ Gatto, James ‘Murr’ Murray and Brian ‘Q’ Quinn.
In 1999 they began to perform live improv and sketch shows as The Tenderloins and had some success. It was after their online videos became the main success and they won a $100,000 prize in the NBC It’s Your Show competition that they ventured to television.
What is Sal Vulcano’s net worth?
Impractical Jokers has been an undeniable success for the four men.
Currently, Sal is worth $5,000,000.
Seems like a career in comedy paid off more than one as a New York financier then!
Instagram post shows off his worst punishment
If you follow Sal on Instagram @salvulcano, it’s likely you’ve come across the worst punishment he endured while on the show. One that will last for quite some time.
A tattoo of Jaden Smith on his leg!
Yes, that’s right, they made him get a tattoo of Will Smith’s gangly son on his own limb.
Although Sal has endured some pretty horrendous punishments while being on the show, as he is phobic of casts, heights and germs, phobias the other Jokers aren’t afraid to exploit, this is by far the worst.
