Andrew Maxwell is an Irish comedian originally from Dublin renowned for his cutting edge comedy and intrepid social commentary. 

Andrew has a list of TV guest appearances on UK and Ireland television including popular shows such as: Live At The Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), Alan Daives: As Yet Untitled (Dave), One Night Stand (Dave), Mock The Week (BBC Two) and John Bishop’s Only Joking (SKY). Andrew is also the recognisable voice of MTV’s hit show Ex On The Beach, which is now in it’s sixth series. Andrew has also recorded three live DVDs of his own; Conflict Revolution, Andrew Maxwell: Live In Dublin and Andrew Maxwell: One Inch Punch. However, his most memorable work may be his TV show Conspiracy Road Trip (BBC 3); Andrew takes conspiracy theorists on a road trip in an effort to tackle the truth about their beliefs.

Throughout his stand-up comedy career, Andrew has had many sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and boasts a double Edinburgh comedy award nomination (2007 & 2011). Andrew has performed alongside several well known comedians at The Amnesty / Channel Four’s Secret Policeman’s Ball (alongside Eddie Izzard, Chevy Chase and Dylan Moran), and The HBO US Comedy & Arts Festival in Las Vegas (alongside Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock). 

A festival veteran and founding member of Altitude (a sort after festival in the Alps), Andrew has performed from Montreal's Just for Laughs to Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe and even New Zealand International Comedy Festival back in 2002. 

He's a big deal .. with a long list of accolades. We're lucky to have him performing at our modest comedy club.
Very excited to have this HUGE act live at The Classic for 2 weeks during the Comedy Fest 2018.  


"Sometimes you just want a brilliantly accomplished stand-up with a powerhouse, gimmick-free set that’s hard-hitting and hilarious, politically engaged but not soap-boxing, personal but not navel-gazing. Step forward Andrew Maxwell" ★★★★ 1⁄2 - Chortle, UK 

"If the devil's in the detail, the angels are in his delivery, that delicious meandering way of drawing out a yarn, the intermittent giggles and the charming, twinkly presence. Simultaneous nourishment for the brain and laughter glands this way lie. ★★★★ - The List, Edinburgh 

“With his lightly worn intelligence and bold articulacy, maxwell can afford to be modest and make seemingly extreme statements and exaggerations for comic effect, then win you round to his way of thinking with logical arument and persuasive metaphor.” -The Scotsman
