Andrew Watts is one of the most talked-about new acts on the Comedy Circuit, whose distinctive style and original material mark him out as one to watch for the future. Previously a solicitor in London, he is now a full-time comedian and writer based in Wiltshire. His first full-length Edinburgh Show, "I wish I could be like Andrew Watts", received great reviews, and he is now concentrating on building his reputation on the club circuit.

"Unusual and challenging - very clever - I liked him immediately"
Ronni Ancona (from TV’s Big Impression and Strictly Come Dancing)
Henry Normal (writer of Alan Partridge and The Royle Family)
"A very funny guy"
Brendon Burns (Perrier-award-winning comedian)
“Posh and witty ... exquisitely funny ... one of the new comics making waves" (Time Out)
"One of my favourite up-and-coming comedians, who looks and acts like he's in middle management and whose distaste for everything laddish and fondness for cricket analogies cloaks some darker writing... There's intelligent wit, honesty and more interesting and provocative thoughts in his show than many comics manage in a decade". (The Scotsman)
"His distinctive style stands out - a winning mixture of pomposity, insecurity and emotional incompetence, while the fury-inducing importance he places on the trivial makes for a winning comic stance." (chortle.co.uk)
"Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show" (ThreeWeeks)
His "mix of pomposity and dark humour were an original treat" (The Skinny)
