ANDREW WATTS - Andrew Watts has a distinctive style and very original material. His posh boy humour is intelligent without distancing himself from the audience. Lawyer turned comedian, Andrew is extremely likeable and invariably wins a crowd over as he canters, like an apologetic tsunami, through challenging subjects.
Previously a solicitor in London, he is now a full-time comedian and has written and performed four full-length Edinburgh shows, I Wish I Could Be Like Andrew Watts, Born To Be Mild, Feminism for Chaps and. most recently, How To Build A Chap. All of them received five- or four-star reviews. Winner - Reading Comedy Festival New Act of The Year.
Runner-Up to TV's Jack Whitehall - Amused Moose Laugh-Off.
Finalist - So You Think You're Funny, Laughing Horse New Act of the Year + English Comedian of the Year Competition.
"His distinctive style stands out - a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance." - Chortle.co.uk
