Andy Askins is a diminutive figure, who exudes an air of vulnerability and an innocent child like quality; 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.
Andy Askins has an expertly crafted routine, littered with an eclectic mix of off beat comic songs and parodies. A talented musician, with a captivating voice; popular songs have been re written and given a perverse twist, to tremendous comic effect.
With a wickedly dry sense of humour, Andy’s darker material is sweetened by his innocent and impish demeanour; which never fails to leave audiences in the palm of his hand. With impeccable timing, the inventive and quirky songs are peppered with inspired patter – the lyrics are as strong as the songs and delivered in an inimitable modest.
Andy’s debut on the comedy circuit, was an instant success; and he now regularly performs at clubs throughout the UK. He is available for corporate events and with a routine that is universally funny, and unusually clean; Andy’s act is particularly suited to corporate audiences.
