A married Navy veteran tells a story about the time a married man on base went to have sex with another married woman on base, only to discover that she was having sex with ANOTHER married person.

    Sal Vulcano

    Sal Vulcano

    Before his time on TruTV’s 'Impractical Jokers,' Sal Vulcano details his time as a teenager delivering pizzas on Staten Island, a time that included, spitting on pizzas, naked women, and car crashes. He then naturally pivoted to being an ordained minister and stand-up comedian. Sal also breaks down the early days of his improv group, The Tenderloins, and their unlikely rise to almost 300 episodes on TruTV as the 'Impractical Jokers.' A rapper believed to be gay is now being exposed for being…straight? Only @Rod4Short can explain. He also chimes in on a former TLC star who is taking the saying of putting her “blood, sweat, and tears” into her work literally — at least the “sweat” part. The new season of TruTV’s ‘Impractical Jokers’ premieres on June 16th! This is not a Paramount network show and the only reason that Roy is putting this in the description is that Sal actually IS a good friend. LOL!!! Wanna meet the team or be on the Job Fair?

I Want to See!

You only show you @ the end of the Podcast. I would like to see JG & Third. Love the Podcast, but would like to see them. Third talks about being a BIG GUY, has hair on his face. Show me. JG always sounds like she is always smiling. I want to see. How about Narodo. He doesn’t show himself @ the end of his Podcast either. That is what I miss, even if its at the end.Can’t wait for the new season.
Looked @ video kangaroo was in his yard after his dogs. Lasted 6 minutes
