Jenna Vulcano was brought into the spotlight by her brother Sal Vulcano and the success of the New York comic drama troupe, The Tenderloins. Jenna had frequent appearances on the show "Impractical Jokers" and grew a lot of attention from the viewers. Jenna Vulcano was born in Staten Island, New York, USA, on August 4, 1986. She is turning 35 this year. Jenna holds an American nationality, belongs to white ethnicity, and her zodiac sign is Leo. She was raised together with her brother Salvatore and her sister Dana by their parents, Sal Vulcano Sr. and Dianne Fernandez Vulcano. Jenna's parents divorced when she was still very young, which made a strong bond between her and her siblings.

Jenna graduated from a local high school on State Island in 2004. Some reports say that Jenna attended Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn. While other sources say that she chose not to pursue college and focused on her dream to become a comedienne and an actress—which she is now known for. While her sister Dana got married and already has two children. Her brother, on the other hand, is currently a popular comedian, actor, and film producer. He started the "Impractical Jokers," The Tenderloins, a comedy troupe back in 2001. He formed the group together with his high school best friends Joe Gatto, James Murray, and Brian Quinn.

Jenna's Media Presence

Jenna is active on Twitter, where she created an account in 2015. It already has gathered 971k followers. She doesn't have any known accounts on Facebook and Instagram, unlike his brother, Sal Vulcano, who has over 723k followers on Facebook and over 1.1 million on Instagram.   

She is much closer to her father than to her mother, as seen in her social media posts. Jenna often expresses her love for her father by praising him and stating that he is her best friend, and she's very lucky to have him in her life. Jenna is not open when it comes to her personal life but is very vocal when it comes to her father, who also expresses the same unconditional love to Jenna. 

Her Career and the Wedding Prank

Jenna started making money in her first job as a receptionist and activity coordinator. She was later featured in the hidden camera reality series "Impractical Jokers" that was launched by her brother Sal. The series was popularized by Sal together with his friends, Brian Quinn, James Murray, and Joe Getto or the so-called The Tenderloins comedy troupe. Their group was formed in 1999. The troupe only gained much recognition after winning the "It's Your Show" NBC competition in 2007.

Jenna's first appearance in the comedy series was in the "Strip High Five" episode, where she was doing pranks with her brother and his friends. The fans immediately took a liking to Jenna's outgoing attitude and wished to see her again in the series. Sal Vulcano did not leave the fans disappointed; Jenna had her second appearance in the "Down in the Dump" episode in 2013. In this episode, Jenna was in a slideshow presenting Sal and Joe Gatto in a vacation resort. It is also where Jenna was filmed kissing Brian Quinn, who wore no clothes in the resort. After that, she was featured in the most hilarious and remarkable episode of the series, which was the "Brother-in-loss." This is where a huge wedding ceremony was held to tie the knots between Jenna and James Murray. Both of them were legally married at that moment. There was a scene showing the "couple" signing the application for the marriage in the Office of the City Clerk. Before the actual wedding, Sal was blindfolded and was not allowed to figure out what was about to happen. He was then forced to watch the wedding ceremony and was unable to utter any words because his mouth was taped throughout the service.

However, the newly wedded couple were only good for a day. The wedding was made to be a prank for Sal as revenge after punishing James to skydive from a plane. The exchange of vows was all for the sake of the prank, and they annulled the union a day later. There were assumptions that Jenna and Sal would have a dull relationship after the intense prank was pulled off. There were even rumors that the "Impractical Jokers" would be disbanded due to the tension between Sal and James. But none of these came true. The siblings were still tight as they were before, while Sal and James are back on good terms. 

"Impractical Jokers" has aired eight seasons and more than 200 episodes with 30 specials. It has been airing on truTV since December 2011. The show has received numerous praises from prominent critics and fans. The New York Post writer, Linda Stasi, described the show as "the funniest, and most ridiculous show I've seen in years."

Love Interests

There were rumors that Jenna and James Murray were actually dating way before she was cast in the comedy series. James Murray is an American author and producer. He has co-written the science fiction horror novel "Awakened." They were said to have been dating for over a year before marrying in 2014. But their marriage was only a prank, pulled off to take revenge after Sal punished Murray to Skydive. James has an irrational fear of heights or acrophobia and a fear of sharks or galeophobia. They annulled the day after their marriage. Jenna still kept on referring to James as her husband, especially in her Twitter posts. Before having a "relationship" with James, Jenna was first dating a man known as Famous Shamus, who was an Auto Group Service advisor.
