He made his comedy circuit debut in 2008 when he spontaneously entered an open mic contest. Fast forward to 2014 and he is now one of the most exciting talents in recent years; in demand as an act and an MC at the biggest comedy clubs across Ireland and the UK. Andrew’s quintessentially Irish storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanour make him a natural observational stand up. He has supported both Justin Moorhouse and Terry Alderton on their UK tours and performed his debut hour show ‘Ryanopoly’ at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2012, receiving rave reviews (‘Illuminating debut’ – The Metro). He returned to the Edinburgh Fringe this year with his follow up show ‘Life of Ryan’ to great critical response.
