Angelo Tsarouchas is a Canadian comedian with a show under his name.
Angelo Tsarouchas is not only a heavyweight on stage, he’s becoming a recognizable face on the big screen. You’ve probably already seen him on a few TV commercials he’s the quiet mobster eating a pizza in an ad for Delissio, and he’s the Guinea Pig’s voice in Block Buster’s animated ads.
“It’s pretty cool. I’ve already worked with some of the best actors in the world!” quips Tsarouchas. In that list is Robert DeNiro, Denzel Washington, Sylvester Stallone, the late great Anthony Quinn, Anne Heche, James Woods, and Nastassje Kinski to name a few. Angelo has even given Marlon Brando directions to a good Greek salad. “I think I get some roles just because I look like someone most people know!”
“I was born in Ottawa and grew up in Montreal. I flipped burgers at my Dad’s restaurant, the Steer Burger and made fun of the customers. I always made fun of the neighbours too.” He grew up in an ethnically diverse neighbourhood of Italians, Greeks, Portuguese, Lebanese and of course, French people. “As a kid I desperately needed attention in school. My teacher let me get in front of class and do a routine. I started doing stand-up in high school on a dare. Most comedians seem to get started that way!”
