‘Fiercely funny and utterly invigorating.’ Times

‘One of the most significant comedians working in the country today.’ ★★★★★ Independent

Double-Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Andrew Maxwell is back at Soho Theatre with a work in progress of his brand new show Banana Kingdom, featuring his fearlessly intelligent array of topical observations, delivered in his animated and inclusive style.

As well as his continued dominance on the live circuit, Andrew is currently working on Public Enemies for BBC Radio 4, which will transmit this Autumn. It’s a series of challenging stand-up shows where he uses his trademark intelligence and political incisiveness to dig behind the clichés and assumptions about four ‘slow news’ bugbears that are vilified and consumed with equal vigour in British society: Nationalism, The Internet, Drugs and The Food Industry.

Last September Andrew presented the extremely well received documentary Conspiracy Coach Trip for BBC3 which focussed on the 7/7 Bombings, Creationism and UFOs. Andrew also recently starred in Sky’s John Bishop’s Only Joking, BBC’s Live At The Apollo, Dave’s One Night Stand and he hosted BBC3’s Live Edinburgh Comedy Marathon. Andrew has also appeared on Have I Got News For You, Mock The Week and Celebrity Juice, as well as Radio shows including: Radio 4’s News Quiz, It’s Not What You know… and Dilemma.

‘Stand up. is rarely this politically well-informed or thought-provoking.’ ★★★★★ Scotsman
