Costaki Economopolis comedy show
In the spring of 1993 Costaki was doing graduate work at the University of Georgia. He spent most of his time hammering out a thesis on the influence of political satire on our feelings about government. His off time was spent honing his stand-up skills in pizza joints and bars around town. When he had to turn down a couple of gigs to work on the paper, it made his stomach hurt. He hung in there, finished the thesis, got his masters degree, and within a year was a fulltime comic on the road. He has been criss-crossing the country telling jokes ever since.
But he is easily best known for regular segment on the syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show that reaches some five million people in 140 markets. And that segment has spun off into Quick Snaps, the all-NFL topical version, which has a weekly home during the season on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. Quick Snaps is also a podcast, and appears weekly on several independent radio shows all over the country. This national exposure has opened the door to Costakis dream: people coming to see his live performances on purpose.
After a performance with Jake Johannsen, Costakis mother said, You were better than that other guy. And really, is there anything more to say after that?
