Beloved New Jersey comedian Floyd “Uncle Floyd” Vivino has reportedly been hospitalized after suffering a stroke, with a full recovery expected.
His brother, saxophonist and former Conan O’Brien talk show band member Jerry Vivino, posted on Facebook: “For those of you wondering about Floyd he is improving each day and his doctors are expecting a full recovery from his stroke! Your concerns and love for my brother is greatly appreciated.”
Also, John Jerome posted on Facebook that:
As many of you know, my cousin Floyd Vivino, better known as NJ’s own “Uncle Floyd”, is currently hospitalized, recovering from a stroke. He’s in good spirits and is anxious to get back to work. Although his doctors expect him to fully recover, at this time, it’s important he gets his rest, so no visitors or phones calls please.
Vivino, 71, has always maintained a busy performing schedule, and for several years has been offering weekly live streams of vintage episodes of his TV series, “The Uncle Floyd Show.”
