Upper Darby, PA – Comedian and actor Angelo Tsarouchas visited Philadelphia for the first time to perform at St. Demetrios church yesterday. The famed Greek-Canadian said “I’ve only driven through Philly once, but I like the people and the vibe I get here”.
The two hour performance in the church hall had the crowd laughing throughout the evening and a few even got up and gave him a standing ovation. Tsarouchas shared his Greek experiences from home and growing up, with his contemporary life living now in LA. When the show ended, Greeks gave him hugs as photo ops made it a memorable night.
Tsarouchas has been in the entertainment industry for some 20 years now. Starting out as a stand up comic and moving into the film industry, his popularity continues to grow on a global scale. He has appeared in some 20 films, various TV shows and has many projects, in the works.
Tsarouchas just arrived from Australia, where his three city tour sold out 12 performances. His down to earth, friendly and accessible personality makes you feel like you’re having a beer with an old friend. Following the show, Tsarouchas sat down with the local priest, Father Lekkas of St. Demetrios and a handful of parishioners for a few more laughs and drinks.
