The Uncle Louie Variety Show has been making audiences laugh for years with its hilarious and unique take on growing up as an Italian-American. The show is composed of two dynamic comedians, Lou Greco and Carlo Russo, who have gained international popularity with the comedic celebration of their Italian heritage. “Uncle Louie” is joined by the beloved characters “Pasqualino”, “Zia Maria”, and “Zia Rosa” who are always getting themselves into trouble with their hilarious antics. Greco and Russo have gained almost a half a million followers on YouTube and Facebook, along with hundreds of millions of views of their weekly videos. Even though the pair draw inspiration from being Italian-American, there is something to be found in their show for people from all cultural backgrounds. Once The Uncle Louie Variety Show begins, audience members will be howling with laughter from original music, sketch comedy, stand-up by both Greco and Russo, improv and fantastic crowd work.
