Mahatma Ghandi, Dr Martin Luther King, Mother Theresa, Jesus, Andy Field, Barack Obama, Jon Bon Jovi, Albert Einstein. Inserting himself into lists of people is just one of Andy Field's several talents. More relevant talents include telling jokes, embodying ground-breaking characters and noticing things.
All these talents and more will be utilised to provide an hour of comedy that batters audiences into a giddy daze of laughterful euphoria.
Write your name and important details on a postit note and stick it to your face before attending because this show is liable to render you into a giggling, disoriented shell of a human being, lost in time and space, floating like a rogue poo in an endless sea of unadulterated delight. And if, for some inexplicable reason, that doesn't sound appealing there's always a chance that you'll be able to maintain your grasp on reality and go on with your life as normal, either way you'll have a great time

Chortle Student Comedian Award Winner 2015
Leicester Square Theatre New Comedian Finalist 2014

"He has a surreal outlook, a set packed full of proper punchlines and a nerdy glee in sharing it" - Steve Bennett, Chortle

“He's so laid back it's hard to imagine that anything fazes him. He's the perfect host, a confident performer, minus any cockiness” – The List

Review for Andy Field: Roar
Many comics would look out on an audience of four people and cancel their show, but would Andy Field? Andy Field would not. You get the feeling many of Andy Field’s daft puns and sketches were developed in the mirror—stupid jokes to make himself laugh—and he would happily play to an empty room. We are privileged to be allowed in. Many comics would get disheartened when a quarter of his audience leave halfway through, but Andy Field only gets funnier.

He’s not even annoyed that it’s the flyerer he employed that day, who did such a bang-up job filling the room. Andy Field has overcome disappointment before. Previous winners of the Chortle Student Comedy award have snatched fame and prestigious slots within a year of winning, but Andy Field has not. There’s every chance that will change. You never know who’s watching. Some comics would think it is tempting fate to ask an audience member if he is a critic. (He is.) Most comics would consider it suicide to ask another audience member the same thing. (She isn't – she is a scout from a major comedy promoter). Almost every comic would melt if faced with that room, and Andy Field wobbles a little, but he is determined that we have a good time – and we do.

It’s tempting to make Andy Field into a metaphor for the true heart of the Fringe, the cliché of a comedian plying his art for the art of it, but he’s not. Andy Field is a talented and silly performer who will make you laugh for an hour, improving your life a little bit for a little while.
