Having written and appeared in popular comedy panel shows such as Mock the Week and 8 Out of 10 Cats, and a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Andy has firmly established himself in the vanguard of British comedy with his unique brand of political comedy. We look forward to what he will bring to the Annual Dinner.
