Don’t try to spell his name. Just laugh.
Costaki Economopoulos is a laid-back comedian with sharp takes on politics and everyday situations. His wit can be likened to Lewis Black’s, sans the yelling and heavy sweating. He’s a lot like the funny guy next door.
“Picture the MasterCard logo,” he says in his online biography. “Imagine that red represents truly good funny and yellow is crowd-pleasing, accessible funny. I’m aiming for that little orange slice where they cross. I want two brothers to laugh hard, but I want the smart one to laugh and say, ‘Wow.’”
