Andrew White

Andrew White is Bournemouth’s funniest Hampshire grown comedian. He joins the bill here as your MC and host – fantastically funny. Despite performing as internationally wide afield as Toronto & Berlin he remains a South coast boy at heart and is flamboyantly repressed and optimistically cynical, with an act that’s “not to be missed” (Daily Record​).

He has an impressive online comedy prescence alongside his live work, writing and premiering a full Eurovision parody show; co-creating the award-winning online comedy night Gigless, and racking up over 5 million views and 800,000 likes for his sketches and stand-up clips on TikTok.

Alongside his own sketch and sitcom projects, Andrew’s writing work includes credits for radio, stage shows, and TV formats; as well as developing material for other comedians. His writing has even seen him script online comedy ads for major companies like Samsung, Adidas, LadBible, Domino’s, Bumble, Sky, and M&S.

Andrews is also recommended by superstar Joe Lycett who says “Andrew White is a very exciting and very funny act with accomplished and unique stage presence and some lines that made me annoyed I hadn’t written them!”
