Andy Pitz at the Comedy Vault

The Comedy Vault, 18 E. Wilson Street, Batavia, IL

DETAILS: Many people (mostly therapists) have told Andy that it was a sure thing that he would get into comedy or some other profession typical of attention-seeking middle children.

Originally from Buffalo, New York, he currently resides in the suburbs of New York City with his wife, daughter, two cats, and a dog. He is probably the least funny out of all of them but the only one crazy enough to make a career out of it. Andy has appeared on TV doing standup a number of times, including on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Gotham Comedy Live, and Star Search. He remains a very sought-after act in comedy clubs and for private events and can be seen regularly at The MGM in Las Vegas as well as several of the top comedy clubs throughout the US and Canada. He has also performed comedy tours of China and Israel. *Special New Years Show @ 9:30 includes champagne toast This show is 21+
