Hi I'm Andy Storey a Stand-up Comedian & YouTube Vlogger.
Every week I post Anxiety Vlog, (for the socially awkward) on my YouTube channel which promises advice, funny stories, observations on human awkwardness and tips on how to survive life with social anxiety and low self esteem. It's mainly light hearted and fun but can cover topics such as, dyslexia (which I have) worry, death, low self esteem (me again) and day-to-day fears. Subscribe to my YouTube channel and join the community of Fellow Awkwardians.
You can also watch Video's of my LIVE Stand-up comedy. My agent is Mike at MLA Talent www.mlatalent.com so book me for LIVE work.
I went to a working class comprehensive school and was very dyslexic in it.
I love a tin of pineapple rings.
I live with my Ladyfriend Hilary Jane and our cat Boromir. (Sadly died. The cat not Hilary Jane)
I love not going out in groups and to parties, and am delighted when not invited.
I'm learning to skip in the back garden. (I might even be doing it now)
I love sitting on the sofa, under a sheet and watching murder mystery programmes. Lewis, Cardinal, Unforgotten, Morse. I've never liked Poirot as they cast too many well known actors in them, and you spend the whole show trying to work out what you've seen them in.
