Sharp, observational comedy at its best, Drew has played most of the major weekend comedy clubs over the UK including the Glee Club, Jongluers, Comedy Caberet and Hot Water Comedy Clubs. Whilst equally proficient at opening, middling or closing comedy nights, Drew is quickly building a reputation as a specialist comedy MC, combining interactive crowd work with his own brand of unique humour. Drew also recently hosted the big closing gala at the Merthyr Comedy Festival in South Wales.

Andy has numerous media appearances, including the BBC New Comedy Awards on BBC Choice, Brand Spanking New on BBC Radio 7 and his winning performance on the Weakest Link comedian’s special!
He can do material that’s clever, cheeky, sick or just silly and his performance can shift from deadpan to loud and physical. Andy has played to a wide variety of comedy clubs, theatres, universities and TV shows. He regularly headlines up and down the UK and has worked with all the major chains and comedy promoters along the way. Overseas, he’s performed in Monte Carlo (Laughing Horse), Berlin (Bleu Montag), Abu Dhabi and Dubai (Laughter House) amongst others.
