About the show

Actor/writer Nick Albanese shares his comic and heartwarming true tales of growing up Sicilian in America. More…

In 'The Last Sicilian,' Albanese regales audiences with a sampling of the kind of stories that have been passed down over raucous family dinner tables year after year. You'll hear stories about his childhood years spent in his family's bakery, and learn how generations of his relatives met, married, and overcame challenges to come to America. 'The Last Sicilian' features some Sicilian history as well, and explores how Sicilians met prejudice when they first arrived in the States.
