Andy Robinson

Andy Robinson

Andy is one of the finest comperes working on the circuit today. He's been performing comedy for fifteen years and will continue to do so until he marries into royalty.

Andy’s foray into the world of stand up comedy began in the early 90s, when he played guitar in a band named ‘The Carpetsweepers,’ often leaving both members of the audience in hysterics as his patter between songs gradually became longer and more entertaining than the music.

At the Glastonbury Festival in 1993, Andy won a competition for aspiring young comedians. This first encounter of the sweaty world of stand-up gave him a real insight into a life of comedy. Andy commenced his meteoric trajectory into the glitzy world of show business from a pub in Dudley where he sharpened his trade compering a ‘free and easy’ night every fortnight. The discipline of cracking funnies between bare knuckle boxing and dog fights was an invaluable experience.

Andy enjoyed a brief dalliance with the world of local radio where he worked in Birmingham as a DJ. However, matters came to a head when some light hearted on-air comments about a popular boy band did not correspond with the management’s point of view. Coincidentally, the station was running a promotional weekend with the aforementioned boy band.

Also he’s worked as a warm up artist for loads of popular shows on television such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Shooting Stars, Later with Jools Holland, Jonathan Ross, as well dozens of others you may know and some you definitely won’t. He is still relieved that What’s In Your Celebrity Fridge? never made it to series.

If more trumpets are to be blown Andy has also been the support act for Sean Lock, Rich Hall, Rhod Gilbert and Paddy McGuiness. He is also known as comedy legend Jo Brand’s regular support act, and has worked with her for the past ten years.

Creator of our award-winning show Comedy Carousel, and all-round comedy gem.

'Andy Robinson is an absolute joy to work with...self-deprecating, generous, very funny and relaxed' Jo Brand

 

'Andy Robinson is the comedy equivalent of gold dust, pure talent just waiting to be discovered' - The Guardian

'We don’t blame Andrew Robinson’s parents, but we do believe that the government should take its share of the responsibility' - What’s on TV
