Andy currently performs the highly acclaimed Slacktivist Action Group monthly at London’s Soho Theatre, interviewing politicians, comedians and activists, which he also releases as his regular podcast of the same name. In 2017 he took his show Peak Bullsh*t all around the UK and was named the third most hardworking comedian in the UK by Ents 24…
