Comedy in the Hammer: Manolis Zontanos

Comedy in the Hammer Week 17 Manolis Zontanos


Hello!  Welcome back to Comedy in the Hammer! Every week we sit down with a local comedian and let you know what shows are happening in the city this week!


This week we spoke with Hamilton favourite Manolis Zontanos.


Manolis Zontanos Comedy in Hamilton


How long have you been doing stand up for?


19 years. I started May 10th 1998


What’s your favourite room to perform at in the city?


Hamilton Yuk Yuks


How do you usually deal with hecklers?


Try to make them my friend in a fun way


What advice would you give newer comics?


Don’t worry about what anybody else is doing and how far they’re going don’t compare yourself to other comedians just do it because you like doing it and that way it will always be fine, once you start getting upset about other people doing better than you or getting farther than you know you just doing something that makes you mad


What’s the one joke you’ve tried over and over again to make work but for whatever reason cannot get right?


I have a joke right now that I’m working on where I had to check my dads asshole because he didn’t know what was wrong with it so I took a picture of it with my iPhone to find out my dad has haemorrhoids I’ve been telling on stage sometimes the audiences like that’s hilarious and other times the audience is like what the fuck


Where can we check you out online?

Are there any videos we can see online?


Yes on Facebook and YouTube under Manolis Zontanos
