Things about Andrew that might make you want to see him:
Having performed worldwide at the Montreal, Australian and Edinburgh Comedy Festivals and becoming a regular fixture on the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Calendar, Andrew Stanley is one of the top comics working the Worldwide Comedy Circuit today. Whether it's performing as Resident MC in numerous clubs around Ireland, one of which is the legendary Comedy Cellar in Dublin, or as a quality act in his own right Andrew is always high energy and quick witted enough to keep audiences thoroughly entertained.
Andrew has travelled to the Adelaide Fringe Festival twice, performed at the Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand Comedy Festivals and has been invited to the prestigious Just For Laughs comedy festival in Montreal. He also travelled to the Edinburgh Fringe in 2006 where he teamed up with Australian comic Damian Clark in a show entitled 'I Dare Ya' (Great late night fun - Independent On Sunday) which was then turned into a highly successful TV show on RTE2 in 2007, still the highest rated debut comedy show on Irish TV. He returned to Edinburgh in 2008 armed with 2 shows – His first debut solo show and his own brand of late night entertainment, Andrew Stanley’s Comedy Mish Mash, which returned the following year after receiving rave reviews along with a new solo show On Sale Now.
In 2010 and 2011 Andrew continued to make headway into the UK Circuit performing regularly at Glee, The Stand, Komedia, Jongleurs, Highlight as well as taking part in Latitude, V Stafford/Chelmsford and Reading Festivals.
“…the comedy tsunami that was Andrew Stanley. It’s rare, outside of the Fringe, to see a comic so clearly destined for the top, but with astonishingly good observational material delivered and timed to perfection there’s no doubt about the destination of the young Irishman’s career.” Scotsman (December 2011)

**** - The List (2009)
“Stanley exudes likeable fluffiness wrapped in very quick wits. It was almost as if we were just hanging around in his living-room, having a good old chuckle...brought howls of laughter from the whole crowd” – Gagging For It (2009)
“what the fringe is all about, young comics showing off their talents and having a fun time doing it ****” – Fresh FM (2008)
“rarely can two men enthrall an audience with such amusing banter, and warm, welcoming charm. Theirs is a bizarre but brilliant show, full of biscuits, music and a real interest in the people they're performing to... the most fun filled hour you'll find at the Fringe ****” - Three Weeks (2008)
“a hugely energetic performance, literally bouncing around the stage and infusing the room with an infectious passion” – chortle.co.uk (2007)
