The Comedy Mash Presents… series continues at The Tower Theatre. Expect a buzzing Comedy Club night featuring the best professional comedians, a top-class MC and our brilliant headline act – Andy Askins! We’ll also bring you some of the best breakthrough acts, destined to be future comedy stars.
Headliner – Andy Askins
Since becoming a full time comedian back in 2005, Andy Askins has built a reputation as a distinctive and original talent, and is now a highly sought-after headliner at all the major UK comedy clubs. He has previously had the honour of working with Michael McIntyre, Lee Evans, Jason Manford, Alan Carr, Jimmy Carr, Micky Flanagan, Harry Hill, Rhod Gilbert, Bill Bailey and Jack Dee, to name a few stand-up luminaries.
Andy has an expertly crafted routine littered with an eclectic mix of offbeat original comic songs and parodies. With a wickedly dry sense of humour, Andy’s darker material is sweetened by his innocent and impish demeanour which never fails to leave audiences in the palm of his hand.
On TV screens, Andy had performed on The John Bishop Show, Comedy Central’s The Comedy Store, and two series of The World Stands Up, also for Comedy Central.
“Andy Askins is one of my all time favourites” Jason Manford

John works with the best Promoters in the UK and is also a veteran of the Cruise Ship circuit, having played over 50 cruises.
