Franco Taddeo
Franco Taddeo is able to reach out to the outsider in all of us. Together we laugh and celebrate being stranieri in America. His comedy, like our lives, is neither rooted nor stuck in "nonna's old world". Hilarity ensues when old world meets the new world with only us as its translators! It is comedy about the immigrant as the Hero not the victim. It is Empowering while being damn Entertaining. All about Ethnic Cool not ethnic fools. Franco performs nationwide and has appeared on both CTV and CBC. Having just returned from a triumphant 18 city cross country tour, he'll walk you down that memory of our youth...just in case you happened to "fuggedabout" it.
