about the show

Comedian andy saunders’ show (asms and isms) will provoke thought and laughter.  Andy takes you on a journey through a landscape of his life from hilarious anecdotes of his childhood to life as a father, husband, comedian and Indigenous Australian.

Asms and isms crosses over from the squirmy topics to the downright hilarious. Come & enjoy an evening of crazy fun and stories like how to appropriately name a cyclone, buying cars without upsetting your wife & growing up poor.

“This show is hilarious. Belly aching, cheek hurting, hilarious. See it, see it, see it.”
Adelaide Advertiser

“Disarming wit and charm.”
In Daily

“Andy Saunders comedy was out there. As well as stand up he beatboxed and did impersonations, and maintained across all these elements a high level of skill.”
Rip It Up Adelaide

more about andy saunders

After touring Australia and South East Asia, Andy had yet another successful season with Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2016. With 31 shows in a three week residency at Melbourne Town Hall as well as TV performances on Comedy Up Late, Oxfam Gala and The Melbourne International Comedy Festival 30th Birthday Bash, Andy is warmed up and ready to set the laugh bar very high with his beloved live audiences.

Saunders has headlined Corroboree Sydney’s Black Humour Comedy Night and his online comedy show WhiteBLACKatcha tackles political correctness and stereotypes in equal measure with parodies of TV shows and characters such as Ray Ray Boy, the Aboriginal zumba instructor.

Saunders and fellow WhiteBLACKatcha creators Grant Leigh Saunders and Jay Davis were commissioned last year by ABC TV to produce festive show Black Santa.

His parody of One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful called Coz I’m Aboriginal, meanwhile, has amassed more than 350,000 views on Youtube.
