35 days left until Asheville’s annual comedy festival, Laugh Your Asheville Off, August 13th to August 17th.
Today’s feature comedian that will be performing at Laugh Your Asheville Off is Andy Forrester.
From Forrester’s Bio:
Andy Forrester’s brand of off the wall humor has made him one of the fastest rising comedians in the Southeast. His high energy and animated comedy has landed him spots opening for such headliners as Rob Schneider, Dave Coulier, Kevin Pollak and Greg Giraldo. It’s his original and appetizing humor that always leaves audiences begging for more. He is sure to make you laugh as he makes himself look like a boob, pokes fun at all that he sees and everyone he knows.
His likeable, Self-deprecating, fun, easy going style is friendly to everyone as he walks you through the mind and life of the man many call BiG”A”. Family, movies, a love of a food and traveling and living with his two little girls is a treat for everyone to hear about the funny life of this family man
Andy’s comedy career seems to have been a lifetime in the making, but officially started in 1999 when he joined the local Improv Comedy troupe in Raleigh, NC, Comedy Sportz. From there he began honing his ability to make people laugh with- out a script, or a clue, eventually becoming one of the premier performers at the newly named Comedy Worx.
In 2005 Andy performed at his first Open Mic at the famous Goodnight’s Comedy Club in Raleigh, NC, and from there things took off. Audiences and fellow comedi- ans alike always comment how “Naturally Funny” Andy is, and are amazed that he can bring the laughs while keeping it clean. In 2008 BiG”A” won the title of Ultimate Comic at the Idiot Box in Greensboro, NC. In 2011 he was part of the Cape Fear Comedy Festival and the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas. He continues to perform at comedy clubs, country clubs, colleges and corporate events across the country.
