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.
Andrew Watts has a distinctive style and very original material, both of which mark him out as one to watch for the future. His posh boy humour is intelligent without distancing himself from the audience. Lawyer turned comedian, Andrew is extremely likable and invariably wins a crowd over as he canters through challenging subjects like an apologetic tsunami. He is also famous for once buying lavender from a drug dealer in Brixton.
Previously a solicitor in London, he is now a full-time comedian. His 2014 Edinburgh show ‘Feminism for Chaps’ received critical acclaim (***** Chortle) and a full house all run, when he then went on to take to New Zealand Comedy Festival. His two previous full-length Edinburgh shows, ‘I wish I could be like Andrew Watts’ and ‘Born to Be Mild’, both received four-star reviews.
Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show.
As seen on FHM’s Stand-Up Hero (ITV4) and The World Stands Up (Comedy Central).

One of my favourite 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.
