Andrew has performed in over a dozen countries at over a hundred festivals. He is equally at home in rowdy comedy clubs as performing to their own cult following.
They co-wrote and starred in the occult Radio 4 sitcom Damned Andrew and will be appearing in Good Omens 2 this Summer.

He has created numerous surrealist solo shows, including ‘The Hay Wain Reloaded’, ‘Parsley’, ‘World of Sports’ and ‘One Thousand New Ideas Before Bedtime’.

Like a tentacled Sinatra, this chthonic crooner is surely one of the great old ones…
