Andy Beningo, named "Best Comedian" by both the Detroit Metro Times and Detroit Hour magazine, has appeared on AXS Gotham Comedy Live, CMT's Next Big Comic and on the Bob and Tom radio show. His new CD "Quiet Coyote" currently plays on Laugh USA on XM Sirius radio. He is the perfect fit for your holiday party or corporate event. His clean material has been hailed all across the country- resulting in having Andy be named one of the 40 Best Up and Coming Comedians in the country.
His act centers around his wife, kids and short lived career as a middle school teacher.
Andy Beningo did a great job working as a Comedian at my son's college. My son's college is a Film School and he was very well received. We even had a former student come to see him and enjoyed his act immensely asking if he could get in touch with him regarding his profession. Andy was very easy to work with and very pleasant. He took the environment he was in and altered his act accordingly, doing crowd participation. Our son's school is a school of Faith and we are Christians so it was important that we find a Comedian that was "Clean". It is very hard to find one that is "Good", can work with a "Budget" and is "CLEAN". Andy was all that and more. We would definitely recommend him to others. Great job Andy!!!
What can I say? Andy was AWESOME!! He came to our facility and was absolutely hysterical. Our team was talking about him for days after the show! "
