Andrew Orvedahl is a comedian originally from Denver, Colorado. He has toured coast to coast opening for some of the biggest names in comedy at clubs, theaters, and colleges. He is a regular at his home club, the renowned Comedy Works in Denver, and has performed at the Aspen, Las Vegas, Seattle, and Bridgetown comedy festivals. Andrew has appeared on Last Comic Standing several times, on Comedy Central’s website, and on Sirius XM radio.
In 2010 Andrew created the hit storytelling show ‘The Narrators” which he also hosts monthly. Equally exciting is Andrew’s work with Ben Roy and Adam Cayton-Holland, both 12 Questions respondents, on The Grawlix. A monthly alternative comedy and sketch show, The Grawlix has grown from indie roots to an empire of hilarious comedians, videos, and exciting opportunities for all the contributing members.
When he isn’t performing comedy Andrew can be found reading comic books, writing fiction, playing video games, riding bikes or taking care of his daughter (usually not in that order).
