From The Uncle Floyd Show, Good Morning Vietnam

Floyd Vivino began his career in show business as a child performer, giving piano recitals and appearing as a dancer with Sandra Lee and Jill Davison. He danced at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York and at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. As a high school student he was being groomed by dance and piano instructors to pursue careers in those fields. Finding it difficult to practice the piano eight hours a day, or working out in ballet class, he dropped both in his junior year, performing instead in the drama club. In high school, on stage, he found the sound of laughter more fulfilling than applause. After high school he went right to work in show business, finding employment in circus, nightclubs, amusement parks, and as a comedian in the few remaining burlesque shows. His varied experiences in the performing arts finally led him to television where he began his own show titled The Uncle Floyd Show in New Jersey on January 29,1974. The show developed a following in the New York-New Jersey area in the 1970′s. Now in its 24th year it is the longest running television show in New Jersey TV history. In February 1987 he started his own Italian radio program, The Italian-American Serenade, which is broadcast on WRTN-FM out of New Rochelle, NY. Vivino claims to have the largest private collection of Italian records outside of Italy, some 250,000. He has appeared as an actor on NBC-TV Law And Order (twice), ABC-TV soap opera Loving, Bill Boggs’ Comedy Tonight (syndicated), Nickelodeon’s Turkey TV and has filled in for Gilbert Gottfried on USA TV’s Up All Night. Comedy Channel audiences have seen him in the Dr. Demento Show. Between all this he managed to get small acting roles in several films including “Good Morning Vietnam”, “Crazy People”, “Mr. Wonderful”, “A Pyromaniac’s Love Story” and “The Clowns of Babylon”. Performing live however, has always remained his first love. He has played the Catskill and Pocono mountains resorts for many years, working the stages at Caesar’s, The Fernwood, Friar Tuck, Roseland Ranch, Green Lake, The Nevelle, Pine Grove, Kelly’s, Villa Baglieri and Villa Roma. He has also toured with or opened for many including Jimmy Roselli, Lou Monte, Melba Moore, Jerry Vale, Pat Cooper, Al Martino, Pete Seegar, Toni Arden, Julius LaRosa, Tom Chapin, Eddie Rabbit, Jimmy Sturr. Currently living in New Jersey, Floyd appears live about 300 nights a year in clubs and on stage.

November 27-28 – Maureen Langan


From HBO COMIC UNLEASHED and Fox
Also featuring Tim Hayes and Mike Casey

I am a New York City-based standup comic – been one for 14 years.  My Irish immigrant mother and garbage man father told me and my five siblings that if we got educated and worked hard then life would reward us.   I scoff at them. Life is rewarding Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, and those freaks of The Jersey Shore. It makes me crazy! People ask “What does a gal from New Jersey have to do to make it in the biz?” Apparently, she has to do a governor from New York.

I’m a regular at Carolines on Broadway, one of the country’s premiere comedy clubs. I perform at clubs and festivals throughout the United States and the world, including Ireland, Scotland, Canada, New York, Boston, and Nantucket.   I’ve opened for Joy Behar, Steven Wright, and Rosie O’Donnell.

Prior to my life as a comic, I was a broadcast journalist for public television, where I covered politics and issues, and Bloomberg TV & Radio, where I satirized news and did man-on-the-street and celebrity interviews.  I created and hosted The Radio Ritas, a nationally-syndicated morning talk show.   I’ve chatted with Howard Stern, Joan Rivers, Phyllis Diller, George Carlin and many others.    I’ve won awards, made money, and had a dental plan.  I got into journalism because I had questions; now all you need is cleavage.

I continue to contribute commentary on television.  I’ve been on The Joy Behar Show, Fox’s Red Eye, MSNBC, ABC News, and The Onion.  I’ve also appeared on Comics Unleashed, HBO, in the Paramount Pictures film “Marci X,” and in many national commercials.  The Newswomen’s Club of NYC named me Best Commentator, and Planned Parenthood honored me with their prestigious Magee Award for commentary.

The Manhattan Association of Clubs and Cabarets (MAC) voted me Best Female Comic of 2009, which means the gay boys dig me, and I dig them.   I was a finalist in the 2009 San Francisco Comedy Competition. They tell me I’m the first woman in nearly two decades to finish in the top three.  The last one was Ellen Degeneres.

Some people have said nice things about me.  Some have not, but for now the nice will suffice:

“Langan made me laugh till I wet my pants. Not nice for a guy my age. She is to comedy what James Brown was to soul.”

Jerry Stiller, Comedian and Actor

“Smartly piercing wit…Bitterness is a useful comic tool and Langan wields it with skill and precision ‘I feel like Canada,’ she gripes. ‘I’ve got so much to offer, but nobody gives a sh-t.’”

Steve Bennett, Chortle.com

“Maureen is wry and wicked. Audiences love her and so do I!”

Joy Behar, The View and The Joy Behar Show

“With her wonderful Irish background and her feisty streak, Langan would make a great sitcom wife, mom or character. She’d be a great addition to E! Television or Comedy Central.”

Amelia David, Backstage Magazine

I grew up in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey, where there is no lake.
