Andrew Michael Milonakis (/mɪləˈnɑːkɪs/; born January 30, 1976[2][3]) is an American actor, writer, rapper, comedian, and streamer, best known for his work on The Andy Milonakis Show, a sketch comedy series that aired on MTV and MTV2 from 2005 to 2007. Other notable films and TV series Milonakis has appeared in include Kroll Show, Waiting..., and Adventure Time.

Early life[edit]

Milonakis was born in Katonah, New York, to a Greek-American family. His father was born in Greece.[4][5] Milonakis was born with a growth hormone deficiency, causing him to have the appearance and voice of an adolescent.[6] He attended John Jay High School in Lewisboro.[7] Milonakis turned to comedy and humor as a preemptive defense mechanism.[8]

Career[edit]

On January 26, 2003, the day of Super Bowl XXXVII, Milonakis decided not to attend a friend's Super Bowl party and instead recorded a video titled "The Super Bowl Is Gay". He posted the video to the website AngryNakedPat.com, and within two weeks it went viral. A writer for ABC's new late-night show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, spotted it and got Milonakis on the program. At the time, Milonakis was working as a tech support staffer at a Manhattan accounting firm.[8][9][10]

Milonakis first started rapping on YouTube; his first song was called "The Andy Milonakis Rap". He was in Three Loco, a group that also included rap artists Dirt Nasty and Riff Raff, but on September 26, 2014, he announced that the group had broken up.[11]

From 2014 to 2015, Milonakis hosted and starred in a cooking show called "Fat Prince" on Munchies, a YouTube channel that is part of the Vice network.[12] In each episode, Milonakis and a changing cast of chefs combined cheap ingredients with expensive ingredients to make a unique meal.

In December 2016, Milonakis announced he was joining the Baited podcast, with YouTubers Anything4views, Colossal Is Crazy, and Keemstar. According to Twitchmetrics on February 26, 2017, he was the fastest-growing streamer in the "IRL" category of the popular streaming website Twitch at that time.[13]

On May 30, 2020, Milonakis tweeted the fifth-most-liked tweet of all time on Twitter, writing "Congratulations to the Astronauts that left Earth today. Good choice" referring to the Crew Dragon Demo-2 launch during the George Floyd protests and the COVID-19 pandemic.[14]
