With his absurdist observations and unique delivery; Andy Parsons has firmly established himself as one of the most distinctive and funniest voices on the circuit. The strong Estuary accent and the stilted, stylised rhythm with its unnatural pauses and weird inflections ensure every gag gets a great reception. Andy’s material is sharp, funny and unexpected.

He is a familiar face on our TV screens, seen as a regular panellist on ‘They Think It’s All Over’ and ‘QI’. Andy started his career writing for ‘Weekending’, ‘The Lenny Henry Show’ and ‘Smith & Jones’; he then went on to be one of the main writers, for the groundbreaking ‘Spitting Image’.
