A first class, guitar-wielding comedian with a captivating voice and wickedly dry sense of humour. Andy Askins has an expertly crafted routine littered with an eclectic mix of offbeat comic songs and parodies. Popular songs have been rewritten and given a perverse twist to tremendous comic effect. With impeccable timing, his inventive and quirky songs are peppered with inspired patter and the darker material is sweetened by his impish demeanour which never fails to leave audiences in the palm of his hand.
Andy Askins headlines at The Comedy Store and comedy venues nationwide. On our TV screens, he has performed on two series of The World Stands-Up for Comedy Central. He is also a firm favourite of the Armed Forces, recently travelling to Iraq and Afghanistan to entertain the British troops.
“ALTHOUGH HE LOOKS MILD-MANNERED AND STUDIOUS, HE ACTUALLY PACKS A WRY, CHEEKY WIT. THERE IS, MOST DEFINITELY, SOMETHING WARMLY ALLURING ABOUT HIM. HIS WINNING PERSONA GOES A LONG WAY.” www.chortle.co.uk
