Help When You Least Expect It Wild Wallaby and Kind Koala decided it might be a good thing to have this crocodile along for the journey after all, even if she was a little cranky. They approached her and asked if she'd like to stick together for a while. She gave a full-toothed smirk. "It might not be a bad idea to always have a couple of plump snacks nearby."

“We are all wanderers on this earth. Our hearts are full of wonder, and our souls are deep with dreams.” (Old Romani proverb)In the 21st century, cultural differences and individuality are often celebrated and protected across much of the world, and given society's conscientious awareness of such phenomena, it is, therefore, all the more surprising when considering the ignorance or indifference that the world, at large, exhibits toward the Romani people. Otherwise known as the “Roma” or by their popular misnomer “the gypsies”, the members of this highly undervalued and grossly misrepresented community have long been considered outcasts. More often than not, the Romani are branded by even those who fancy themselves liberals as “pikeys”, “gyppos”, and “gips”. There's also a regrettably common term “gypped” meaning “to cheat, or swindle” which perpetuates the damaging stereotype that the Roma are dishonest nuisances and societal pests. Even well-intentioned attempts to shine the spotlight on the community have sometimes been counterproductive, for they are often reduced to no more than exotic, whimsical entertainers for the privileged. According to a shocking email authored by an anonymous whistleblower in 2012, the staff at the Laurieston Job Center in Glasgow's Southside regularly referred to their Romani customers as “gypos, scum, beggars, suicide bombers, thieves, and pedophiles”. The whistleblower cited the staff's disturbing comments regarding an unnamed Romani woman who had brought her two children along to the job center: “The staff were all joking and saying they should sanction her for claiming whilst pimping out her kids. They then went on to make horrible remarks about the children, saying they were "mongs".On August 5th of the same year, over 700 far-right “activists” stormed the heavily Romani-populated Hungarian village of Devescer. “Gypsy criminals,” the mob chanted as they hurled rocks, paving stones, and 1.

Julia Scotti's new brand of comedy is honest, hilarious, fearless, and fierce. Drawn to comedy from the time she was a child - "almost like a religious calling" - she holds nothing back. She has been described as a "force of nature," "a cross between Sam Kinison and Mrs. Doubtfire," like a "chainsaw flying through the room." A speaker, author, and nationally headlining comedian, who happens to be transgender, Julia got her start as Rick Scotti successfully touring both the United States and Canada as an opening act for artists such as Chicago, Lou Rawls, and Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Rick Scotti enjoyed success until leaving comedy in 2000. During that hiatus Julia began her life changing transition, and settled into her new career as a teacher. In 2011, after a 10 year break from comedy, Julia returned to the stage. In 2013, she was named one of the Top Five Transgender Comedians in the country by Advocate Magazine. In 2016, at the ripe age of 63, she hit her stride on season 11 of America's Got Talent on NBC, where she earned a standing ovation from the studio audience with her honest, fearless delivery, instantly winning the hearts of viewers everywhere, and joking her way into the quarter finals. Judge Howie Mandel said "You have so much to offer; you are a joy," and a pleasantly surprised Simon Cowell exclaimed, "You genuinely made me laugh." Julia became the first transgendered woman to enter and progress to finalist in the New York Based Ladies of Laughter Competition. She has also performed at the Boston Comedy Festival, and was one of the winners of Laughlin Laugh Festival in Nevada in 2014. Appealing to fans of every generation, Julia says, "Young kids laugh at me because I'm like a crazy grandmother. Middle age people say I remind them of their grandmother and my age people say it's so true what I say." With her storytelling and rapid fire style of comedy, Julia Scotti delivers a masterful performance in i 1. Language: English. Narrator: Julia Scotti.
