Bio (aka showing off bit)

Andy is a mildly-successful singer-songwriter and one of the fastest rising comedians on the UK circuit, gigging extensively around the country and having already written and performed two separate hour-long Edinburgh shows. His comedy debut was to a packed and lively Christmas crowd in December 2015 (going onstage just before legend Bob Mills), which included a song written especially about the town he was making his debut in - a risky move but luckily they loved it and Andy lived to gig again!

Before embarking on his comedy career Andy was already an acclaimed singer-songwriter, with tours taking him to places as far afield and exotic as USA, Canada and Wolverhampton. Uncut Magazine were kind enough to say that "Stedman's voice is sure to melt hearts." - a quote he still uses to this very day and may have mentioned when first meeting the woman who would later become his wife. He is currently recording a new album to be released in 2018.

Andy is a lively,  likeable and versatile compere, his cheeky nature allowing him to get away with a lot more than many acts are able to. His reputation continues to grow quickly . He is a resident MC at Piccadilly Comedy Club in London's West End, and hosts a variety of comedy nights, corporate events, PTA's, charity fundraisers, private parties and sports dinners, often penning impromptu songs about audience members. As well as his MC/host role, Andy's club set is a lively and varied one, with a mix of songs, silly poems, jokes and audience interaction (of course!) 

Andy is married and has two young boys - Freddie Elvis Stedman and new arrival Charlie. He is a huge Elvis fan, supports QPR and follows England at cricket, having once been captain of Surrey Youth team. He claims to have been a stylish playmaker at football, but sadly there is no video evidence of this. He is also an entrepreneur, having founded Dodgeball UK after seeing the film.
