Hungry Comedian Stavros Halkias Readies His Big Fat Rascal Tour

Comedy is in the mind of the beholder and if you like yours loud and very profane then Stavros Halkias – he’s part of a podcast of the ‘dirtbag left’ using vulgarity to attack capitalism – is your guy.

He’s got a hunger for more than trying to be funny and uncivil too, and the Baltimore native pokes fun on stage at his weight and appetite for late night food after his gigs on the road.
He was featured in GQ magazine talking about being a stand-up comedian and the life that leaves him looking for chicken wings after midnight to satisfy a craving as big as trying to make audiences laugh.

“The road is where it’s mentally and logistically tough – you give yourself an out. I’m in a strange city and I’m not done ‘til 1 AM, all I can eat is dog s–t, you know? I know I’m in trouble when I’m thinking about the meals I’m going to have when I’m traveling,” he said. The Halkias-headlining Fat Rascal Tour begins in February and finishes three months later with the filming of his next coming special.
