May 2-3 – Julia Scotti
From Showtime, Atlantic City, Las Vegas
Also featuring Conrad Roth and Kym Howell
A lot has changed for Julia Scotti who has been performing stand-up comedy since 1980! Beginning at the Original Improv in New York she toured most of her career as Rick Scotti, headlining clubs in 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 lost to Ellen DeGeneres.
In 2000 Julia left stand-up as she began her life altering transition. Now, 10 years later, she’s back with a vengeance, bringing her highly energetic, highly manic and highly funny persona home to the stand-up stage. 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 a regular headliner at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and The Borgata in Atlantic City. She is currently in development for her own one woman show, “The Woman with XY Vision”, and has just finished writing a book about her amazingly funny life that will be released in 2014.
