Attention anyone who has ever forgotten their BFFs birthday: YOU ARE NOT ALONE! It turns out that even Impractical Jokers star Joe Gatto can’t remember his bestie Sal Vulcano’s birthday — even after all these years of friendship. Joe sat down with In Touch and talked about the Jokers’ upcoming plans for Sal’s 40th birthday (it’s on Nov. 5, by the way, Joe).
“I historically can't remember Sal's birthday,” he told In Touch — joking that he knows it’s “November-ish.” Joe came up with a fool-proof plan so Sal doesn’t catch on, though! “I never know when it is and we always have this joke like, starting Nov. 1 I just call him every day, and it's made its way into the show.”
Unlike in years past, this time around Joe has a special reminder for when Sal’s big day is: the Impractical Jokers Cruise! “ I know this year just because it's after our cruise… It leaves out of New Orleans and we go down to Mexico.” And, besides the cruise, Sal gets to do something extra special: perform his very own stand-up! “We come back into New Orleans the night before his birthday, so he's actually doing a stand-up show in New Orleans, so we'll be there celebrating which is good,” he said. “He's the funniest guy I know, so I like watching him just do his thing.”
One birthday Joe is sure to never forget is his baby boy Remington, who he and his wife just welcomed back in August. "I'm excited he's finally here. [My daughter] Milana made me love being a dad so imagine it'll now be twice as fun," he told In Touch.
