“Last year I did a world tour that took me around the globe,” says comic Angelo Tsarouchas. “I was in Australia, New Zealand, Britain, the Middle East—which resulted in a bunch of new material.” In his current set, Tsarouchas talks about his travels, as well as life back home in Los Angeles with his wife and young daughter. Born in Canada to Greek parents, he still feels like an outsider in southern California. “My wife was born here and my daughter was born here,” he says. “I’m on the road a lot, and when I’m back home I’m focused on them.” When he performs in a town, he tries to immerse himself in the area. “I take public transportation,” he notes. “In Minneapolis, I’ll take the train from the Mall of America to downtown to really see what’s going on. Minneapolis and St. Paul are really in the center of North America, and the people are very knowledgeable about a lot of things, but they like it when you make fun of their town a little bit.”
