Andrew Michael "Andy" Milonakis (born January 30, 1976) is an American actor, writer, rapper, and comedian. He is best known for creating and starring in The Andy Milonakis Show on MTV and MTV2. In 2013, he began a recurring role as Roman Armond on the Comedy Central sketch Kroll Show.
In the morning of January 26, 2003, on the day of the Super Bowl, Milonakis, after he decided not to attend a friend's Super Bowl party, recorded a video titled "The Super Bowl is gay". He posted the video to the website AngryNakedPat.com which within two weeks became a viral video. A writer for ABC's new late-night show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, spotted it and got Milonakis on the program.
Milonakis first started rapping on YouTube; his first song was called "The Andy Milonakis Rap". He was in Three Loco, a group of the rap artists Dirt Nasty and Riff Raff but he made announcement on September 26, 2014 that the group had broken up. He currently has his own cooking show on MUNCHIES, a YouTube channel that is part of the VICE network.
Milonakis would use comedy as a means to cope with incessant bullying. "Humor is a great defense mechanism," says Milonakis. "If you're a serious, fat, young-looking guy, you're not going to be the most popular guy in high school."
