Since his first show at a Black Country open-mic night, Andrew McBurney has swiftly gained a reputation across the country as an astonishingly original comedian. With pitch-perfect delivery, his semi-character based “Melancomedy” finds belly-laughs in the bleakest of places and a lot more.
“I had the pleasure of watching an act for the first time who was refreshingly different but more importantly very very funny. The kind of act after a few years experience you resent because you have to follow them. His name Andrew McBurney book him.” Mick Ferry
“His magnificently wretched stage persona gave his material an emotionally bedraggled edge. The concept of comedy as therapy is nothing new, but he appears on the verge of tears, desperately trying to hold it together, as he revealed he has just been dumped. That raw heartache defined what should have been material, giving every funny line a pathos-laden twist. We’ll see more of him.” Steve Bennet, Chortle.
“Any promoters out there, I stake my modest reputation on comedian Andrew McBurney. He not only had an hilariously original take on the ‘my girlfriend dumped me’ schtick, but he followed up with a pitch-perfect parody of Def Comedy Jam, not bad for a pasty white Scot. Seriously, he is one to watch and you should book him before you can’t afford to.” Andy White
