Favorite NY Comic Greg Kritikos turns Misery into Movie Magic in CHARLIE BOY
Spend 1 Minute with Greg Kritikos and you will see why this Nyc comic headliner has audiences flocking to him and great buzz surrounding his starring role in CHARLIE BOY, a brand new comedy movie by Timothy Hines.
Greg Kritikos was always going to be a beloved comedic celebrity. This gritty, street-wise, reformed gangster continues to be in comparison to Jackie Gleason for his heart and appeal. He’s frequently popular to headline New York City’s biggest and quite a few legendary comedy clubs, including Gotham, Carolines and Dangerfield’s. And after this he or she is the starring role from the feature comedy CHARLIE BOY, which Kritikos co-wrote with Frederick Stroppel and which features Kelly Le Brock as Donna and Burt Young as Luca.
CHARLIE BOY, based loosely on Greg Kritikos’ real life, follows the tale of straight and sober recovering mobster Charlie Borakos. Charlie now works as a standup comedian and, after a period of recovery and giving to his beloved community of Astoria, Queens Nyc, he’s still burdened by the guilt of his son’s death and friend’s maiming because of his drinking, drugging and negligence of the past. While colleague Tommy G’s gambling problem surfaces towards the extreme and his prior mob boss Big Angie moves back to town, Charlie’s benevolent and save-the-day attitude and knack for doing all he can to assist others and switch misfortune into laughter, saves the morning and catapults Charlie one stage further of enlightenment.
Charlie Boy director Timothy Hines says, “It was Greg and Frederick’s script that drove me to make Charlie Boy. We have worked on this business for several years and that i haven’t read such a perfectly balanced and honest comedy. I needed to choose this movie. And working with Greg, a few things i can let you know, he could be a walking dynamo and each inch an accessible humanist.”
“When I met Greg Kritikos I immediately saw this modern-day Jackie Gleason slash James Cagney man which has a soul-spilling heart, who forced me to be laugh my face using one-liners and improvising,” comments producer Susan Goforth that is producing CHARLIE BOY along side Kritikos. “Kritikos coupled with Frederick Stroppel’s comedic writing, the leadership of director Timothy Hines and executive producer Dominick Martini and a heaven-sent cast and crew, i knew CHARLIE BOY would come out successful. I am just so thankful for everyone and all the good luck about this picture. I can’t wait for world to see Greg Kritikos knock this one out of your park.”
