His humor has been described as smart, pointed, hip, sharp, insightful, socially relevant, and gut-laugh funny. A fellow comic once referred to Costaki as a "casually brilliant joke philosopher." He weighs in on everything from parenting and politics, to pirates and rice cakes. And his light swagger, playful squint, and wry smile tell you that perhaps there's more to this multi-layered joke than you first recognized.
Costaki began to make some noise in the business by reaching the finals of the Seattle Comedy Competition, where he was discovered and invited to the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival. He was just one of ten finalists in Comedy Central's Laugh Riots national talent search. He's been back to Montreal twice since then.
You may have seen him recently on the Showtime Special Caroline Rhea & Friends. Over the years, Costaki has performed in 48 states, covering the country's best clubs, hundreds of beautiful theaters, dozens of colleges, and some of the worst bars in America.
Also a talented writer, Costaki's jokes have appeared on The Tonight Show, The Late Late Show, and Best Damn Sports Show Period. He was a writer for BET, where he was staffed on two of their hit shows. He wrote jokes for Bette Midler's Kiss My Brass Tour. Costaki spent Spring Break one year in Cancun writing on the MTV show Parental Approval. He also wrote daily for The Complete Sheet, a DJ prep service that goes out to almost 500 stations worldwide.
But he is easily best known for The Economonologue, a weekly segment on the syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show that reaches some five million people in 150 markets. And that segment has spun off into Quick Snaps, the all-NFL topical version, which also has a weekly home during the season on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. This national exposure has opened the door to Costaki's dream: people coming to see his live performances "on purpose."
