BIG COMEDY, BIG TALENT, BIG THINGS—Larger than life, actor/comedian Angelo Tsarouchas is without question Canada's next "big thing." Dubbed "The Hitman of Hilarity", Angelo definitely exudes star power. His trademark mobster resemblance, burly size and no hold back attitude have put him in high demand on the global comedy stage as well as in television and film projects—on both sides of the border. More than just a mobster look-alike, Angelo's acting resume is highlighted with 10 feature films in the past 2 years—all of which have seen tremendous box office success. He has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood including Denzel Washington, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Marlon Brando, Edward Norton, Sylvester Stallone and Chris Rock. Some of Angelo's high-profile film credits include John Q, The Score, The Prince and Meand the critically acclaimed teen cult flick Harold and Kumar Go To Whitecastle. Angelo also appeared in Cinderella Man starring Russell Crowe and Renee Zelwegger (look for Angelo as New York Times reporter John Savage).
In addition, Angelo has recently signed a deal to develop his own film, which he has written and will be starring in—and the script is generating interest from some of Hollywood's industry big-wigs.
Aside from a budding film career, Angelo has seen much success on the international comedy circuit. He is one of Canada's most celebrated comics, selling out venues across the country. Angelo has taken his "in-your face" stand-up style all over the world including the famed Just For Laugh's comedy festival in Montreal, the Smirnoff Comedy Festival in Cape Town, South Africa, and the Paramount Comedy Festival in the U.K. He has performed at some of the top comedy clubs in New York, LA, London and Miami. Angelo also took his one-man comedy show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2005. He recently was featured in a sold-out Sultans of Satire: Middle East Comic Relief show at USC. With a DVD and CD out entitled "It's All Greek to Me" which ranked in the top 100 downloads on Puretracks, "Big Ang" is clearly a star on the rise.
