From a press release:

It was announced today that improvisational comedian, actor, and producer Sal Vulcano, best known for the hit television shows “Impractical Jokers” and “The Misery Index,” will perform stand-up live at the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Oct. 13.

In 1999, he co-founded The Tenderloins Comedy Troupe with his “Impractical Jokers” co-stars James “Murr” Murray, Brian “Q” Quinn, and Joe Gatto. Competing to embarrass each other while being filmed by hidden cameras, they have been making TV audiences laugh since 2011, reaching a 200-episode milestone in 2020. Now in its 10th season, “Impractical Jokers” is a Top 5 comedy on cable and truTV’s longest-running and top-rated original comedy.

The group has toured with a live version of the show to sold-out crowds across the world, including legendary arenas, such as Madison Square Garden in New York and the O2 Arena in London. They came to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre last year and The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton in 2017; they also did two back-to-back shows at the Kirby Center in 2016.

In addition to entertaining people in person and on TV as part of The Tenderloins, 46-year-old Staten Island, New York native Sal Vulcano founded the No Presh Network in 2020, hosting its “Hey Babe!” and “Taste Buds” podcasts.

Doors at the F.M. Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) open at 5:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m.

Tickets, which are $43.75, $53.75, and $63.75, plus applicable fees, go on sale this Friday, July 14 at 10 a.m. at the Kirby Center box office during regular business hours, online at and, and by phone at 570-826-1100. A Kirby Member pre-sale begins Thursday, July 13 at 10 a.m.
