The Uncle Louie Variety Show

Sat / November 2, 2019

Doors: 7:00 pm / Show: 8:00 pm (event ends at 10:00 pm)

$35.00 - $50.00

If you are of Italian decent or grew up with Italian friends, this is a must see show.

Lou Greco, 48, was born in the U.S. but his parents were born in Italy. Carlo Russo was born in Palermo, Sicily and also grew up hearing his parents speak Italian.

The laughs began six years ago, when Greco started posting jokes on Facebook. He called it the “broken English word of the day.”

The jokes soon became skits, and the skits became videos, which drew massive audiences on social media. Now, the Syracuse natives are on the cusp of their first comedy tour in 2018, starting in Australia.

No outside food or beverage will be permitted.

The Uncle Louie Variety Show
Carlo Russo and Lou Greco of Syracuse started the “Uncle Louie Variety Show” on Facebook for family and friends.
Now, their comedy show has evolved into a live stage show, which has embarked on a world tour.
When Lou Greco and Carlo Russo met in high school, they bonded over their chatty Italian families, who spoke broken English passionately and unapologetically.
Greco, 48, was born in the U.S. but his parents were born in Italy. Born in Sicily and Calabria, Russo was born in Palermo, Sicily and also grew up hearing his parents speak Italian.
As adults, they have been writing and performing “Italian American comedy” in Syracuse for years.
The laughs began six years ago, when Greco started posting jokes on Facebook. He called it the “broken English word of the day.”
The jokes soon became skits, and the skits became videos, which drew massive audiences on social media. Now, the Syracuse natives are on the cusp of their first comedy tour in 2018, starting in Australia.
“It’s surreal,” said Russo, 49. “It’s like, how did this happen?" They have over 200,000 followers on social media and millions of view on their videos.
