Uncle Floyd and Julia Scotti
Julia Scotti/ Uncle Floyd : Double Headliner at the Brook!
The laughter will be nonstop at the Brook Arts Center on Saturday Aug 3rd when Sarcasm Comedy presents comedian Julia Scotti and the legendary Uncle Floyd in a DOUBLE HEADLINER SHOW!
Julia Scotti, who was a semi-finalist on America’s Got Talent 2016, burst onto the national scene when she dropped the F Bomb and came out as transgender. Only a true Jersey girl would do that! For 48 years, known as comedian Rick Scotti, she appeared as a headliner in comedy clubs and an opening act for artists such as Lou Rawls, Chicago, and Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.
Uncle Floyd is a such a Jersey treasure they tried to bury him several times! The Uncle Floyd Show which aired from 1974 to1998, was a half-improvised, low budget variety show, starring Uncle Floyd as the host, puppeteer and piano player. The program included live music by local bands and well-knowns, like The Ramones, Bon Jovi, and Madonna. Much of the humor was aimed at adults in the style of Soupy Sales and Pee Wee Herman. David Bowie wrote "Slip Away" about Uncle Floyd and said he'd heard about him from John Lennon.
Hosting the show will be New Jersey 101.5’s Steve Trevelise who has opened for among several others, Robert Klein, Gilbert Gottfried, Artie Lange, Louis Anderson, and the late Richard Jeni.
Showtime is 8 pm. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at www.brookarts.org
