Andy Askins is a diminutive figure who exudes an air of vulnerability as he steps up to the microphone armed with a guitar and a cheeky grin. It’s an overwhelmingly misleading demeanour which serves to heighten the impact of the killer lines that he delivers.

On TV screens, Andy was recently invited to appear on The John Bishop Show, performing a storming set at the Hackney Empire, alongside a stellar line-up from the worlds of comedy and music. The show transmitted in a primetime Saturday night slot on BBC One earlier this year. Having impressed audiences and executives alike, Andy was then invited back to perform on this year’s John Bishop Christmas Show (the only Artiste to be invited back from the series).

Since becoming a full time comedian in 2005 Andy has headlined all the UK major comedy clubs and regularly headlines at The Comedy Stores in London and Manchester.

Andy has performed several support slots with the mighty Lee Evans, recorded a set for Comedy Central’s The Comedy Store, and accepted invitation to appear for a second consecutive year at the Altitude Comedy Festival in Austria alongside Sean Lock and Bill Bailey. He has previously had the honour of working with Michael Mcintyre, John Bishop, Jason Manford, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Micky Flanagan, Harry Hill, Rhod Gilbert and Jack Dee, to name a few stand-up luminaries. He continues to go from strength to strength in the live comedy world and is highly sought after as a distinctive and original talent.
