A lot has changed for Julia Scotti who has been performing stand-up comedy since 1980! Beginning at the Original Improvisation in New York she toured most of her career as Rick Scotti, headlining clubs in both the United States and Canada. She has appeared on Comedy Central and was the winner of Showtime’s “The Funniest Person in America” contest for the state of New Jersey; she would go on to eventually lose that year to a young, unknown comedian, Ellen DeGeneres.
In 2000 Julia left stand up as she began her life altering transition. Now, ten years later, she’s back with a vengeance, bringing her high energy, highly manic, highly funny persona home to the stand-up stage. Most recently Julia was proud to be the first transgender comedian and finalist in the “Ladies of Laughter” competition held in New York City. She has also been named by the Advocate as one of the “Top 5 Hottest Transgender Comedians of 2013”.
Julia is currently in development for her own one woman show, The Woman with XY Vision, and she’s also busy shooting her pilot No Man’s Land. Let’s not forget Julia’s blog, Julia Scotti-Inside and Out, which is now being read regularly in over ten countries. For an old lady, she gets around, huh?
