When four guys grow up together there is a chance that they will jokingly harass each other at some point.

If you've never seen the hidden reality show, it basically revolves around the four friends taking dares and pranks to ridiculous levels. Never one to turn down a great challenge or a good laugh, we talked to Vulcano before this troupe hits Club Nokia on October 23rd for two shows of hilarity. Since we know he's is up for anything, we figured he wouldn't mind explaining a few things to us like his nickname, his tweets, and his phobias. We even got some awesome bonus info on his mama and we already like her. A lot.
