ANDREW KENNEDY was born in Bogota, Colombia and spent most of his formative years in South America, the Caribbean and the Far East. His mother is Colombian and father British, neither of who could understand the other. This helped Andrew and his brothers to become fluent in both English and Spanish. By the time he was 13, Andrew had lived in Colombia, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Hong Kong, the United States, returned once more to Venezuela, and then finally settled in New Canaan, Connecticut (his father got fired a lot). He joined the National Guard his junior year in high school and, at seventeen, was the youngest in his battalion at Fort Sill Oklahoma, were he learned from drill sergeant Diaz that he couldn't "take it all back..." He finished basic training, something his father credits to straightening him out. He then went off to complete college and decided to use his degree in Managerial Communications to become a comedian and not make any money for a very, very long time. He did however, get to make fun of drill Sergeant Diaz, something that hopefully won't come back to haunt him if they ever open up a Funny Bone in Lawton, Oklahoma!
Andrew Kennedy developed, produced and starred in his own television pilot for CBS Related by Marriage, and his half hour Comedy Central special was voted one of the network's Top 20. He has been seen on The Very Funny Show TBS, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, SiTV's Spanglish 101, Baby Madness Discovery Channel, and nickmom Night Out.
Additionally, Andrew has performed at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival Canada, Kilkenny Comedy Festival Ireland, and The World Travel Awards in Dubai. Andrew has shared his story live on stage around the world and twice, has performed at Lincoln Center. Back Home on Fusion Network centered an entire episode on Andrew, following him all the way to Bogota, Colombia. He's done all this while raising three non-dysfunctional children with his wife Amy and their Golden/Labrador Retriever and part St. Bernard, Sampson.
His greatest accomplishments are yet to come!
