“Traveling around, telling jokes, and doing the football stuff in the season, that keeps me very busy,” reports Costaki Economopoulos of his life and career these days. “It’s crazy.” The football “stuff” took hold a few years ago when he realized how much he was spending following pro football and managing his fantasy team. He figured he should write some jokes on the subject. That led to his Quick Snaps podcast and weekly appearances on dozens of radio stations during the NFL season. In his standup set, though, he won’t do a lot of pigskin humor. “I’ll maybe do 10 minutes of that,” he explains. “The show is mostly about me and my crazy life and my kid and my wife — funny stories and things that bug me. I’m trying to be more personal, so the football stuff is kind of just fun for me, because I get to write jokes about how the kickers suck and whatever crazy thing happened that week. It’s more observational joke writing, which is what I used to do in the old days. Now with being more personal, the football jokes are a nice respite for me.” 18+.
