This 63-Year-Old Comedian Surprised The 'America's Got Talent' Judges In More Ways Than One

"Age has nothing to do with it."

63-year-old Julia Scotti took the America's Got Talent stage on Tuesday night's show and kept the audience laughing with her stand-up comedy routine.

When asked why she was auditioning, Julia told the judges, "I want to show people that age has nothing to do with it. You know, you don't stop just because you got gray hair."

Julia wasn't afraid to joke about her age, even if it meant shocking people with her honesty. "I'm in the autumn of my years," she said. "It is, 'cause my foliage is starting to change color ... if you know what I mean." 

Julia got in a few more great one-liners, joking, "My primary care doctor is a paleontologist." She also uttered a few colorful phrases that made the audience gasp and gave the bleep button a bit of a workout.

The judges were thoroughly charmed by the routine. Heidi Klum called Julia's comedy "naughty" and said, "You really made me laugh."

But Julia wasn't done surprising everyone. After her performance, she revealed to the judges that she's transgender: "For the first 28 years of my life, I was known as Rick Scotti."

Howie Mandel told her, "Whether you're a man or whether you're a woman, you're human, and you're funny, and you're talented, and you're brave."

Julia received four "yes" votes from the judges. Watch her hilarious routine below:
