When we spoke to comedian Angelo Tsarouchas last summer, he had just returned from doing a series of shows in Greece. In the past year, he has continued working overseas, mostly in the Middle East. “I’ve been doing shows in Britain and also in Dubai and Qatar,” he says. “All those places the Donald is not too crazy about.” Only about half of his audiences in those countries are expatriates. “A lot of the locals speak English and were educated in the U.S. and U.K.,” he notes. “Working overseas, I’ve noticed how much Comedy Central, Netflix, and other outlets have changed the international landscape for comedians. A lot of my material really resonates with international audiences. They’re really immersed in our culture.” Contrary to what our president would lead you to believe, many in the Middle East love us. “In Qatar, you’ll see an Applebee’s in Arabic,” Tsarouchas adds. “They say, ‘I want to go to America, I want to go to New York and San Francisco.’” It’s been a great source of material. “I even tell them, ‘I’m here to get new material,’ and they laugh.” 18+; 21+ later shows.
