For one night only, the sharp-witted and hilarious Andy Farnsworth is coming to The Backline!
a decade, Andy Farnsworth has been a touring standup. His
signature-brand of autobiographical “fun meltdown” was born in Chicago,
styled in Los Angeles, toughened in New York City, and tested in a
casino five miles outside of Butte, Montana. Andy’s emotionally-rigorous
style has earned him opening spots for Doug Stanhope, Michelle Wolf,
Mark Normand, and others.
Along with his standup, Andy has
published comic fiction, produced radio essays and stories, and a
critically-acclaimed podcast. His work has been featured on NPR’s On
Point, WBUR and WMFO in Boston, and WESN.
In 2014, Andy
launched Wandering the Aisles w/ Andy Farnsworth, an out-in-the-world
podcast that explored New York City. Unique guests and spontaneous
conversations guided his journeys to the Staten Island Ferry, Central
Park, a Brooklyn Barber Shop, Prospect Park, Alpha Donuts in Queens, and
the Union Square subway station.
