Julia Scotti: Funny That Way is a new documentary about senior trans comedian Julia Scotti. In this conversation, we talk about the movie with Scotti herself, plus the director of the film Susan Sandler. Here, Scotti talks about the challenges of revisiting her life story, including the important moment in her life when she gained widespread notoriety after appearing on America’s Got Talent. We also ask Sandler about working on the film, including what it was about Scotti’s story that prompted her to make her film directorial debut.
Julia Scotti: Funny That Way: Comedian Julia Scotti‘s vibrant and moving comeback as “The Crazy Old Lady of Comedy.” Last seen 20 years ago as Rick Scotti (on bills with Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, and Jerry Seinfeld) she comes out on network TV, her children return after a long and painful estrangement, and we watch her triumphant homecoming to the brutal standup comedy world as she delivers a truth that breaks down walls.
