If there is one word that aptly describes Andy Milonakis, it is multi-talented. The American media personality is not just a comedian but is also an actor, rapper, and a popular Twitch streamer. He has appeared in several shows but is most popular for his absurdist but incredibly funny show, The Andy Milonakis Show. What makes Milonakis’ story so incredible is that he owes much of his fame and success to a 4-minute video which he made out of boredom. Want to know more about his story? We have got all the details right here including his age, net worth, wife, movies, and TV shows.
Andy Milonakis Bio (Age)
Andrew Michael Milonakis was born on the 30th of January 1976 in Katonah, New York. He spent his formative years in Westchester County, New York City and completed his high school education there. With regards to his family background, his mother’s name is Kathleen Milonakis and he has an elder sister (name unavailable).
Andy Milonakis first got into comedy as a form of self-defense mechanism. He was born with a natural condition known as growth hormone deficiency which affected his appearance. He basically looks and sounds like a kid, and coupled with the fact that he was fat, he was an easy target for high school bullies. Milonakis thus learned to make self-deprecating jokes about his appearance so that no one will pick on him. This strategy was quite successful as he went through high school mostly unscathed.
After graduating from high school, Andy Milonakis joined an accounting firm as a tech support assistant. The job was predictably boring and in order to deal with the monotony, he made short funny videos which he posted on AngryNakedPat.com. At first, these videos were mildly popular and received 10 to 15 comments at most. All these however changed on the 26th of January 2003. On that fateful day, Milonakis had rolled out of bed with nothing to do. The day also happened to be the day for Super Bowl XXXVII but the comic couldn’t care less. He picked up his cheap guitar and started singing about the Super Bowl being gay. He also sang about a bunch of other things (cologne, water, and the sky) that were gay and dramatically concluded that we are all gay. Milonakis posted the video to the website as usual and it garnered 100,000 downloads within the first 24 hours. It became a viral internet sensation and within a month, he was doing cameos for the Jimmy Kimmel Show.
Movies and TV Shows
Since his viral video, Andy Milonakis has not relented but has instead worked hard to transition into mainstream success. He has appeared in several comedy movies and TV shows. On the big screen, the New York native has featured in movies such as Waiting (2005), Who’s Your Cabby, Killer Pad, Weiners (2007), Major Movie Star, Extreme Movie (2009), 2 Dudes and a Dream, Still Waiting, The Tales of RJ (2009), Mac & Denin Go to High School, The Newest Pledge (2012), Dumbbells (2014), Halloweed (2016), and Bodied (2018).
On the small screen, Milonakis has appeared in TV shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Too Late with Adam Carolla, Last Call with Carson Daly, Nick Cannon Presents: Wild N’ Out, Crank Yankers, Kroll, and Adventure Time. Adventure Time is a Cartoon Network fantasy series about the adventures of a young boy and his dog with magical powers. Milonakis voices the role of N.E.P.T.R and has appeared in about eight episodes of the show.
His Net Worth
Andy Milonakis has a net worth of $2 million. His fortune largely stems from earnings from his show, The Andy Milonakis Show. The show was created by him and his mentor, Jimmy Kimmel and debuted on MTV in 2005. It features different segments including the popular man-on-the-street segment. During this segment, he often swoops down on unsuspecting persons on the street and baffles them with illogical statements as well as freestyle rap. He also treats his unsuspecting victims to silly pranks. The show has also featured celebrity guests such as legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, John Stamos, The Black Eyed Peas, Nick Cannon, Seth Green, Sarah Silverman, Akon, and Bow Wow.
Andy Milonakis’ Wife
The comic/rapper is yet to get married or have any kids for that matter. There is also no reports of any girlfriend at this moment. This may mean that he is single and still searching. It may also be that he has someone in his life but is choosing to protect the person’s identity. If the latter is to be the case, then one cannot really fault Milonakis as public scrutiny can be harsh and intense at times.
