Biography

The show has been on the air in the local New Jersey and New York area off and on since 1974, for a time airing on the state wide PBS network, New Jersey Network. It can be read as a children's show, or a parody of a children's show. Much of the humor has a twist aimed at adults in the style of Soupy Sales, or another comedy performer that followed Floyd's lead, Pee Wee Herman.

The show features slapstick comedy, puppetry, some audience participation, and piano music. His puppet sidekick (actually a ventriloquial figure) was named Oogie. The show first aired on United Artists Columbia Cable of New Jersey on January 29, 1974 then starting in November 1974 on UHF TV station WBTB-TV, Newark (broadcasting on channels 68 and 60), later becoming WTVG, then WWHT, as ownership changed hands.

Floyd Vivino wrote the lyrics for and, under the guise of his country and western character "Cowboy Charley", sang the locally famous parody song "Deep In The Heart Of Jersey" (based on the tune of "Deep In The Heart Of Texas").

Uncle Floyd, steeped in the traditions of Tin Pan Alley, is able to perform hundreds of songs from the early part of the Twentieth Century, and has on more than one occasion claimed to be descended from a traditional line of court jesters from the kingdoms of Italy. He performs live upwards of 300 nights per year, and has appeared in small roles in movies, such as Good Morning Vietnam and Crazy People. His brothers, Jimmy Vivino and Jerry Vivino, are members of the Max Weinberg 7 band on Late Night With Conan O'Brien since 1993.

He has appeared on several television shows filmed in New York City including Law & Order, 100 Centre Street, and Cosby and is currently a regular on the Sirius Satellite Radio program The Wiseguys Show hosted by former Sopranos cast member Vincent Pastore.

In 1980, "The Uncle Floyd Show", as seen on local channel 68 in North Jersey, went into a small syndication circuit which included WNBC-TV channel 4 in New York and then WTAF-TV channel 29 in Philadelphia.

Part of the variety format of the show included in-studio appearances by many rock and roll acts, sometimes lip-syncing and sometimes performing live, making clear that the show was not aimed only at children.

Since 2004, on Tuesday nights Vivino can be found playing the piano at Colucci's restaurant in Haledon, New Jersey.
