Greek Stand-up Comedy
Since 2015 I have taken on promoting Greek comedians in the UK and Europe, by bringing the cream of the crop of Greek stand-up comedy for one-off shows and tours.
Silas Serafeim "50 Shades Of Greek", 24/05/2015, Manchester
Silas Serafeim, often referred to as "the George Carlin of Greece", is one of the first and the longest performing stand-up comedians in Greece.
He was the 1st performer on stage for the opening night of the very first comedy club in Greece and has since been going strong with radio and TV appearances, his own YouTube show "In The Mind of Silas" and of course stand-up.
Lambros Fisfis "This is 30", 11/10/2015, Manchester
If Silas is Greece's George Carlin then Lambros is undoubtedly its Jerry Seinfeld. A stand-up comedian since 2008, Lambros moved into scriptwriting. His first sitcom "The 592€ Generation" was a major success then topped by the astounding popularity of his next show "Burn The Script".
Lambros continues to write and perform both in front of the cameras and on stage.
