Andrew Polk was raised in the backwoods of North Louisiana, where he learned to live, laugh, love, and then get the hell out of there. A resident of New Orleans for 3 years, he describes the city as “largely problematic” as bars don’t close, and parallel parking is required in almost all situations. Many of Polk’s influences can be found by turning on the television anytime in the mid-90’s. Once he saw a blimp.
He produces and hosts the weekly stand-up showcases Comedy Beast, and his pet project NOLA Comedy Hour, which is releasing a stand-up mix-tape on July 8th through Oscillations Records in Austin, Texas. His sketch group MASSIVE FRAUD produces a monthly film and stand-up showcase, as well as a weekly open mic at The Beatnik.
You may have seen him at FunFunFun Fest (Austin, TX), Hell Yes Fest (NOLA), Buku Fest (NOLA), Trill Fest (Houston), Black Box Comedy Festival (Atlanta), or the Cape Fear Comedy Festival (Wilmington, NC). He has toured as a feature for Todd Barry, performed on the road with Kyle Kinane, and was a featured guest on the Nerdist Network podcast Terrified!. Recently, Polk can be heard announcing Dave Attell on his Comedy Central special “Road Work” andhe will be appearing as a special guest on the Esquire Network’s “Best Bars in America” with Sean Patton and Jay Larson.
