A contributer to the Daily Show, ANDY KINDLER has also appeared on Letterman, Conan, Everybody Loves Raymond, and was a judge on NBC's Last Comic Standing. Featuring DAVE BURLEIGH (America's Got Talent, Not Another Celebrity Movie) and BILL SANTIAGO (Chelsea Lately, Showtime, Comedy Central)
Andy Kindler is known in comedy circles as a troublemaker. Originally from New York, and now complaining from California, he annoys people all over the world.
Andy is a frequent guest and correspondent for The Late Show with David Letterman. Each summer at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal he delivers the State of the Industry address to a packed ballroom filled with comics and Hollywood industry types. He is infamous for his scathing attacks on the world of entertainment, including the previously taboo practice of making fun of his fellow comedians. Just as the comedy boom of the nineties was imploding, Andy wrote the “Hack’s Handbook” for National Lampoon. This “how-to” guide satirized and exposed tired comedy formulas.
Andy currently recurs on IFC’s Maron, Comedy Central’s Tosh.0 and Fox’s hit animation, Bob’s Burgers. He was also a judge on the seventh season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and starred in two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials. Other noteworthy credits include the HBO Young Comedians Special, Late Night with Conan O’Brian, The Daily Show, Wizards of Waverly Place, Dr. Katz Professional Therapist, Home Movies and The Larry Sanders Show. Andy is often recognized for playing the life-affirming character “Andy” on the CBS sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
