Costaki Economopoulos bills himself as “the biggest name in show business,” but there’s more to this stand-up comic than clever wordplay. Well-known for his political and current events humor, he's found himself drifting more toward domestic comedy these days.
The 39-year-old and his domestic partner, fellow comic Caroline Rhea, welcomed a daughter last year, and Dad can’t believe his luck. “When we started talking about having a kid,” he says, “I was a little panicked because it’s not compatible with being a comic really.
On stage, Economopoulos still has thoughts of home and his family. “I watched (Caroline) on Sabrina: The Teenage Witch,” he reminisces. “A cat talking to her while she’s cooking dinner. I thought, ‘This show is ridiculous, Caroline doesn’t cook dinner.’”
Economopoulos performs at Go Bananas Thursday through Sunday. Tickets are $10-$15.
