About Jerry Percio:

Jerry Percio, a  versatile comedian, easily moves
his stage show from stand-up monology to musical
parodies without missing a beat. Jerry was the first
published white rap artist in the U.S. With a
voracious appetite for information, Jerry is the first
one to say that he will never run out of material for
his act. For all he needs to do is read the paper a
watch the news and the material just falls into place
from the crazy things people do every day. Jerry just doesn’t do impressions of some of his favorite actors and cartoon  characters, he does  “recreations”.

Native of Cleveland, Ohio, Uncle Jer is one of the top parody, novelty, singer and songwriters in the country. His creations have been played on Dr. Demento’s syndicated radio program and Rick Dees’ Weekly Top 40.

Impressions and harp are among many of his talents. Jerry has produced 8 CD’s of live performances and music. He holds a BS degree in Accounting and a Masters degree in Sociology, which comes in handy in this trade since it’s the study of group behavior.
