Andy Beningo – Clean Comedian
With over 2,800 career performances, Andy Beningo has established himself as one of the most in demand comedians working today. Hailed for his clean and “every man” style, Andy has been named one of the 40 Best Up and Coming Comedians in the country, as well as “Best Comedian” by both the Detroit Metro Times and Detroit Hour magazine. His Drybar Comedy special, ‘Adorable Tough Guy’ generated over one million views on social media in its first week of release. Andy has appeared on AXS Gotham Comedy Live, as a final four finalist on CMT’s Next Big Comic, and on the Bob and Tom radio show. Andy’s new CD, ‘Quiet Coyote’ regularly plays on Laugh USA on XM Sirius Radio. His rare ability to find humor in subjects like growing up the middle child, his short lived career as a middle school teacher and our society’s obsession with technology has made him a crowd favorite in audiences worldwide.
Beningo has performed in corporate events for Fortune 500 companies (like Dow Chemical, Cisco Computers and All State), in colleges, church functions and on cruise lines. He has shared the stage with many of his comedic heroes, including Frank Caliendo, Greg Giraldo, John Heffron, Dave Coulier, and Rocky Laporte. He has performed in some of the finest clubs in the country, including Gotham Comedy Club in New York City, Zanies in Chicago, Comedy Store in Los Angeles, and nationwide in the Improv and Funny Bone Comedy Club chain. Comedy Festival performances have included: Gilda’s LaughFest in Grand Rapids, MI (where he was the warm up act for Betty White’s sold out show at the DeVos Center), the Detroit Comedy Festival, the Great American Comedy Festival (at the Johnny Carson theater) and the Clean Comedy Challenge- where he won several awards.
