Born Andrew Michael Milonakis, January 30, 1976, in Katonah, New York, U.S. He is an American actor, writer, rapper, and comedian of Greek descent best known for creating and starring in The Andy Milonakis Show on MTV and MTV2. He currently plays the recurring character NEPTR on the animated series Adventure Time. Milonakis was born with a congenital growth-hormone condition that gives him the outward appearance and voice of an adolescent even though he is an adult. In his high school years at John Jay High School, in Cross River, New York, he would use comedy as a means to cope with incessant bullying. “Humor is a great defense mechanism,” says Milonakis. “If you’re a serious, fat, young-looking kid, you’re not going to be the most popular guy in high school.”
