Comedian Andy Ritchie is definitely on a rapid rise. He hails from Minneapolis, where he developed his initial comedy chops on the improv scene. Perhaps having played one too many rounds of Freeze Tag, he verged into stand-up, and has never looked back. Now residing in Austin, TX, his past accomplishments include making the semi-finals of Comedy Central's "Open Mic Fight," a top-three finish in the venerable "Funniest Person in Austin Contest," and a write-up in Esquire Magazine stating he has "The funniest joke [the Writer has] ever heard."
Sports fans may recognize Andy as "Wally Balls," the host of FSN's "Softball 360," and comedy hipsters may know him from his appearances on the "Comedy Death Ray" show in Los Angeles.
