Greg Kritikos of Legendary Entertainment NYC is a comedian, actor, writer and producer who immigrated from Greece as a youth, growing up on the rough streets of Astoria, Queens, New York. Kritikos knows the streets of Astoria all too well.
At 20, Greg “The Greek” was hanging out with some of the toughest guys in Astoria and Long Island City. It was in the late 1980s that Greg found himself on Rikers Island, overweight and on drugs. “A lot of guys didn’t make it, and I’m one of the lucky ones who did,” he said. In 2012, Kritikos had been sober for a year and had lost 185 pounds. He turned to acting and his life began to fall into place. Her life experiences have helped Kritikos translate her pain and struggles into acting, acting, writing and production. Greg’s brand of comedy has taken him all over the country, selling out venues wherever he performs. When not on tour, Greg produces a monthly show at the Broadway Comedy Club in Manhattan called “Broadway’s Got Talent” as well as a “NYC Views News & Reviews” podcast.
Greg has also written and starred in a feature film, Jtomorrow todaywhich just came out Amazon Prime Video and AppleTV. The film follows a small, semi-reformed mobster, Charlie Boy (Greg Kritikos), as he navigates the mean streets of the Astoria neighborhood of Queens, New York.

To find out more about the film:
Tara Segda is originally from Texas. She grew up in Corpus Christi, attending art schools and performing at the Harbor Playhouse. She trained at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York. While the theater is close to her heart, she hung up her tap shoes for a while and practiced martial arts. Tara’s dream of being a super villain is still present. The problem with dreams is that we have many of them and each is achieved in a way that serves the highest good. After her, JOY brought her back on stage. She created her own projects and met many amazing like-minded friends along the way. Tara continues to work with these friends creating projects that inspire her higher self to come out and breathe a sigh of freedom. Working as an actress in New York has been all about growth and expansion.
Angelus Theodore “Teddy”
Teddy, originally from New York, grew up in an eclectic family of writers, actors and filmmakers. After his father fired him 3 weeks after he joined the family business after graduating from college, Teddy moved to Los Angeles to find himself. After a year-long stint at the Liquor Barn in Los Angeles, he and his father “reconciled” and he returned to New York to start working again at his father’s business. This time it took 4 weeks before his father shot for the second time. That’s when Teddy decided to be an actor and started studying at HB Studios and got a job as a bartender and waiter at a fancy club on East 57th Street. After 2 years, his acting career was going nowhere fast, so he changed and started working in corporate recruiting. He eventually started his own recruiting business and built it to over 100 recruiters before it was sold in 2010. After the sale he ran a tech coding school and recently returned to tennis – working at the Roosevelt Island Racquet Club while putting together The Meth, a series of live storytelling events.
