Philadelphia improviser: Andrew Shaw

Andrew Shaw

Andy’s day job is writing news, but he is waiting for his big break. And by that, he means an America’s Next Top Model producer spotting him in the mall looking awesome and making him the show’s first male contestant. Either that, or just becoming famous for being funny. Either/Or.

He’s performed in several York-area shows, most recently “Music Man” at Fishing Creek Playhouse. You can also randomly catch him doing stand-up at the Harrisburg Comedy Zone, where he’ll talk about his chiweenie and make random Oregon Trail references.

He also prefers “Sister Act” to “Glee,” and has never read a Harry Potter book, a fact that has caused his near ouster from the Oxymorons. Andy would also like to ask mid-1990s Tiffani Amber Thiessen on a date. Please call.

He serves as a co-director of the Oxymorons.
