James Murray, Brian Quinn, Sal Vulcano, and (formerly) Joe Gatto are known for starring in Impractical Jokers, a hidden camera show. The comedy group is notorious for its hilarious sketches and pranks. The show has earned them both fame and fortune. As of 2023, the Impractical Jokers cast have a combined net worth of $28 million!
Who Are the Impractical Jokers?
Gatto, Murray, Quinn, and Vulcano are buddies and former classmates from Monsignor Farrell High School. The four of them are lifelong friends and grew up together in Staten Island, New York.
In 1999, Joe, Murr, and Sal became the founding members of the Tenderloins, an improv and comedy sketch group. They had another member, Mike Boccio, who was later replaced by Brian Quinn. At first, they were performing at live shows but when Q joined in 2006 they began uploading videos online and received millions of views.
The Tenderloins claimed first place and won a $100,000 grand prize in NBC’s “It’s Your Show” competition. After this, they shot a pilot episode for a scripted comedy show for Spike TV but it wasn’t picked up. Fortunately, the guys didn’t give up and got a deal with truTV in 2011.
How Rich is Each Member?
The Impractical Jokers have an estimated net worth of $28 million with each member worth $7 million. Their rise to success has been amazing to see. Since airing on truTV, they continue to pull in huge numbers. According to reports, the cast earns $50,000 per episode. They also released a movie in 2020 and regularly tour across the US.
James Murray – $7 million
Aside from Impractical Jokers and a position at NorthSouth Productions, James Murray has picked up some acting gigs. Murray has featured in TV dramas such as Bones, MacGyver and Down to Business. He’s the most accomplished actor out of the other guys and also appeared in Christmas Time in 2017.
Sal Vulcano – $7 million
Before entering the comedy world, Sal got a degree in finance from St. John’s University in 1998. He briefly managed a bar called “The Full Cup” which sadly shut down in 2016. Sal and Brian launched a podcast together called “What Say You?” as it’s difficult to get the gang together for their main podcast.
Brian Quinn – $7 million
Despite not being an original member of The Tenderloins, Q has become a fan favorite. Before the show, he worked as a fireman for seven years. Currently, Brian is involved with a bunch of podcasts. In addition to the podcast with the main cast and Sal, he has a podcast titled “Tell ‘Em Steve-Dave” with Bryan Johnson and Walt Flanagan.
Joe Gatto – $7 Million
Joe Gatto was undeniably an important member and committed a decade of his life to the group. However, Gatto left the comedy show in December 2021 as his marriage with Bessy Gatto ended. Hopefully, when the time is right, Gatto will make a return. The show just isn’t the same without him.
