Andrew Schulz is a New York City based stand-up comedian, writer and actor.
Andrew was born and raised in Manhattan, NY but started his stand-up comedy career in Santa Barbara, California. While attending The University of California at Santa Barbara, he managed a restaurant that had a comedy night. The woman who produced the night, Louise Palanker, asked Andrew if he had any interest in performing. Andrew took the opportunity and hasn’t stopped performing since. He returned from school one month later and began to work himself into the New York comedy circuit.
Andrew got his start in New York at the Comedy Village. Although he only had a few months experience he soon found himself performing with the top acts in the city. In search of more stage time Andrew began to play New York’s infamous “Chitlan Circuit.” He gives full credit to the comedian “Smokey” for giving him an opportunity to get on stage and grow comedically. After the Comedy Village closed down, Andrew branched off to the other clubs in the city. He credits Comic, Calise Hawkins, for providing him with stage time and knowledge about the New York comedy circuit. In 2008, Andrew started his own show at the Village Lantern; a show which he still runs today with comedian Mike Rogan every Tuesday at 9:30.
Currently, Andrew Schulz is the host of the television show “Certified” on the Music Choice network. In the summer of 2008 he performed in the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Festival in Scotland. He is finishing the filming of a sitcom pilot called “Rise of the Radio Show” and is creating a web series.
