Bilingual comedian Andrew Kennedy was born in Colombia, to a Colombian mother and British father. His physical appearance belies his ethnic diversity. Half White, half Latino and having had a great grandmother who was half Black; Andrew bridges cultural boundaries like very few entertainers can. With hysterical commentary on family, society and our very own unique ability to react subconsciously to those who appear different from us. Andrew uses his vibrant, colorful and unique characters (along with an almost surreal ability to mimic every accent imaginable to impossible perfection) to do much more than merely make us laugh.
Andrew Kennedy developed, produced and starred in his own television pilot for CBS Related by Marriage, and his half hour Comedy Central Presents special was voted one of the network’s top 20. He has been seen on The Very Funny Show TBS, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, SiTV’s Spanglish 101, Baby Madness Discovery Channel, nickmom Night Out and two appearances on Gotham Comedy Live AXSTV. Additionally, Andrew has performed at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival Montreal, Kilkenny Comedy Festival Ireland, and The World Travel Awards. Back Home on Fusion Network centered an entire episode on Andrew, following him all the way to Bogota, Colombia. With two decades of experience, along with hundreds of performances entertaining and educating audiences from Lincoln Center, to London, to Dubai – and beyond, Andrew asks all who see him to take home one lesson: “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover…”
“We hired Andrew for our comedy show signature fundraiser knowing we have a very mixed crowd. Andrew was a big hit – the crowd loved him! He was so funny with real-life humor that everyone can relate to. I would definitely hire him again.”
“Andrew was terrific from the moment I met him.”
