What is considered the Golden Years? It’s the time in life when most can slow down and enjoy retirement. However, comedian Julia Scotti has a caution for those who are looking forward to this season. And she hilariously explains why those years may not be as shiny as once thought.
A Different Perspective On The Golden Years
At the 2:10-minute mark of the clip, right after the age of an audience member surprised and confounded Julia, she claims the person who came up with "The Golden Years" term may not have been the brightest.
"What idiot named them ‘The Golden Years'? Oh, please. Let me tell you something about ‘The Golden Years', ok? I'm standing in front of the mirror naked this morning (audience laughs). Wait. So, I'm standing in front of the mirror and I'm looking at myself and I'm going, ‘Oh man, if these are "The Golden Years," then the price of gold just collapsed," Julia said.

Julia also mentions, in hilarious fashion, that anyone who believes the Golden Years are truly golden, should consider some things.
"If you think 65 is the new 55, try sleeping through the night without getting up to pee like 4 times, right? Try climbing a flight of stairs without stopping halfway up," Julia said.
Comedian Julia Scotti On Getting Older
The clip of Julia's stand-up kicks off with her making a startling discovery about herself and the town she was performing in at the time.
"This is my first time here. I walked around your lovely town today and I realized that every place I went, I was the oldest person there. What have you done with all the old people? Where are you hiding grandpa and grandma?" Julia said.
Julia goes on to explain how she’s no longer able to fool people regarding her age. Instead, people react to her with a rather pained expression.
"I am old, man. I've got a birthday coming up. I'm at this age where I can't even lie about my age anymore without getting the face. I was telling people I was 60 for years but I just kept getting this (makes surprised expression)," Julia said.
