Andy Kindler is known in comedy circles as a troublemaker. Originally from New York, and now complaining from California, he annoys people all over the world.
Andy is a frequent guest and correspondent for "The Late Show with David Letterman." Each summer, at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal, he delivers the State of the Industry address to a packed ballroom filled with comics and Hollywood industry types. He is infamous for his scathing attacks on the world of entertainment, including the previously taboo practice of making fun of his fellow comedians. Just as the comedy boom of the nineties was imploding, Andy wrote the "Hack's Handbook" for National Lampoon. This "how to" guide satirized and exposed tired comedy formulas.
Andy was recently seen as a judge on the 7th season of NBC's Last Comic Standing. He is the star of two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials and currently recurs on Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place and FOX's upcoming animation Bob's Burgers. He was also a regular comedy litigator on The Root of all Evil. Other noteworthy credits include, the HBO Young Comedians Special, Late Night with Conan O'Brian, The Daily Show, Dr. Katz Professional Therapist, Home Movies and The Larry Sanders Show. Andy is often recognized for playing the life-affirming character Andy on the CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond.
