Julia Scotti: Funny That Way
1 Hour 13 Minutes
In the comedy boom of the 1980s, Rick Scotti was a busy guy - appearing in clubs across the country, on bills with Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld - when he came to the powerful realisation that nothing felt right. At a time when the words gender dysphoria and gender reassignment surgery were rarely heard, Rick’s true awakening at age 47 led to a new identity as Julia Scotti. And then everyone turned away: friends, family, comedy world buddies, and most painfully Julia was shut out from any contact with her children. She reinvented herself, spent a decade teaching, and then several years ago, stepped back on stage and began her journey back to the family she loves.
