Best of Halifax

Best Local Character

Gold Winner Fat Apollo

Silver Winner Rouge Fatale

Bronze Winner Jerry “The Dawgfather” Reddick

“Fat Apollo is a man that emits charisma and intelligence,” says John Roy, Geeks versus Nerds’ project manager, where Fat Apollo (AKA Michael McCluskey) graces the stage on a regular basis as a charter member of the show. “People are drawn to him because he cares for all—as a friend, as a geek and as a local icon. He only hopes to help others around him.” What a testimony! The outspoken, ubiquitous McCluskey can be seen sporting a Battlestar Galactica bed sheet costume, with cape and boxing gloves. Honestly, you can’t miss him. Why is he so gold-medal worthy? “How many other grown men do you see wearing a bed sheet?” asks Roy. Fair enough.
