HOLLYWOOD, CA (February 27, 2006) � This March, comes the peculiar world of a cult sensation with THE ANDY MILONAKIS SHOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON. Originally discovered by Jimmy Kimmel, Milonakis has gained underground fame with this absurd series, which originally debuted on MTV in June 2005. Following his off-the-wall apartment-bound exploits on New York�s Lower East Side, the program is comprised of surreal and highly-entertaining short films starring himself, his dog, his neighbors and various inanimate objects. Arriving just in time for the second season network premiere on MTV2 as part of the Sic �Em Friday lineup (March 31 at 9:00 PM ET/PT), THE ANDY MILONAKIS SHOW: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON will be available on March 28 as an extras-laden 2-DVD set, only from MTV Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment.

�Andy Milonakis is one of the weirdest young men in the world,� says Kimmel. �I love him and expect that all Americans will soon love him too.� Aside from his unforgettable sketches and films, the first season of THE ANDY MILONAKIS SHOW includes all of Milonakis� crazy antics including berating the local delivery boy, or parading around with a pancake on his face, and also features guest appearances by Lil Jon, John Stamos and Snoop Dogg, among others.

The infamous Milonakis began his antics on the Internet where he developed a cult following, including the recognition of Kimmel, who in turn started featuring Milonakis on his ABC late night show �Jimmy Kimmel Live.� Between his internet notoriety and new found TV audience, this eventually catapulted Milonakis to land his own outlandish series, THE ANDY MILONAKIS SHOW, which now makes its way over to MTV2, serving up a hardcore Milonakis-loving audience that continues to grow.

THE ANDY MILONAKIS SHOW SEASON ONE 2-disc DVD set comes loaded with special features including 25 un-aired skits, extended scenes, commentary by Milonakis' neighbors, the featurette: Andy Goes to Hollywood, and more!
