Andrew Watts has a distinctive style and very original material. His posh boy humour is intelligent without distancing himself from the audience. Lawyer turned comedian, Andrew is extremely likeable and invariably wins a crowd over as he canters, like an apologetic tsunami, through challenging subjects.
Previously a solicitor in London, he is now a full-time comedian and has written and performed three full-length Edinburgh shows, I Wish I Could Be Like Andrew Watts, Born To Be Mild and Feminism for Chaps. All three received five- or four-star reviews.

?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.? - Chortle.co.uk
?One of my favourite up-and-coming 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.? - The Scotsman
?Lovers of stand-up laced with a cerebral cutting-edge should, without further prevarication, flock to his show.? - ThreeWeeks ****
