Lakis Lazopoulos (Greek: Λάκης Λαζόπουλος) is a Greek playwright, actor and songwriter. He was ranked 83rd by the public in Skai TV's Great Greeks in 2009. In 2010, Forbes ranked Lazopoulos as the most powerful and influential celebrity in Greece. Lazopoulos was born in Larissa, Greece, where he received his primary and secondary school education. He then entered the School of Law at the University of Thrace and in 1984 received his Master’s degree from the University of Thessaloniki. However, he decided not to practise law but to pursue other vocations. In 1979, he wrote his first script for the revue Something's cooking in Gipsyland. SAY GOODBYE, IT’S ALL OVER NOW soon followed with great success. Lazopoulos joined the Free Theatre of Athens, where he performed WHY PEOPLE ARE HAPPY, followed by yet another successful revue, CHANGE AND CRAZE. The political situation at the time triggered the production of four revues of a more politico-satirical nature, written between the years 1982-86 by Lakis Lazopoulos and Giannis Xanthoulis: Haido’s Pasok’’ (1982), Pasok keeps harping on (1983), Blowing hot and cold on kastri (the PM’s residence), and Andrea’s taxing tolls (1985).
