Andres Fernandez Comedian Bio: With his fresh brand of humor that is universal in its appeal, Andres breaks down barriers of what an audience expects from a Latino comedian. While charming the audience with his story telling ability, which is an amusing cross between hilarity and reality, Andres always keeps the flow of laughs hard and steady. His act has been critically praised as "ethnic humor," never invading poor taste or becoming mean-spirited for the sake of a laugh. "I don't really do much topical stuff; it's all about what I'm feeling," states Fernandez.

A native New Yorker, Andres says that his comedy routines mainly draw on experiences in his own family, cultural differences among people and conflicts between genders and generations. Andres further illustrates this fact by saying "My mom is Dominican born and raised in New York. But my dad is really the 'ethnic' one. So a lot of my humor has to do with my take on my father and the way he was... which was not like all the other dads in the neighborhood. I mean he trimmed the hedges with a machete!"

Fluent in Spanish, Andres has performed as a member of the Copa Comedy Troupe at the Copacabana, a sketch player in "El Barrio" at Caroline's, and is a ligit stage actor with the Puerto Rican Repertory Theater. Classically trained at the William Esper Studios, Andres combines his love for acting with his stand-up comedy to give his audiences a show they will never forget. Andres also has several television appearances to his credit, including NBC's Friday Night, Showtime's Latino Laugh Festival, Comedy Central's Stand Up Stand Up, a starring role in the Paramont / UPN pilot "American Family" and feature roles in soap operas on ABC, CBS and NBC.
