Andy Beningo
Over the past decade, Andy Beningo has established himself as one of the hardest working comedians in the business today. Performing his clever and "every-man" style of material has led to some 300 dates a year- taking him through 38 states and into Canada. Along the way, he has appeared on AXS Gotham Comedy Live, as a final four finalist on CMT's Next Big Comic, and regularly on the Bob and Tom radio show.

Beningo has been hailed for his clean style of comedy, resulting in being named "Best Comedian" by both the Detroit Metro Times and Detroit Hour Magazine. His rare ability to find humor in subjects like growing up the middle child, his short lived career as a middle school teacher and our society's obsession with technology has made him a crowd favorite in audiences nationwide.

Andy continues to accumulate radio and small television appearances, including being heard on Chick McGee's Off the Air Podcast, on XM Sirius Radio, the Daren Streblow Comedy Show and overseas on the American Forces Network. Appearances on the NBC affiliate show "Night Shift with Kevin Ferguson," the Comedy Time Network, Comcast Cable's Open Mic and on MavTV have been well received. Beningo has won the Clean Guys Unbleepable Contest- and his stand up clip on text messaging premiered before Dave Coulier's Clean Guys of Comedy movie- which was in over 600 theaters nationwide. He became a favorite on Rooftop Comedy, where his material was highlighted on three different TV shows, including Comedy Cut Outs- an animated series. Rooftop also tapped him to host the National College Competition presented by TBS at both Michigan State and the University of Michigan.

Festival performances have included: Gilda's LaughFest in Grand Rapids, MI (where he was the warm up act for Betty White's sold out show at the DeVos Center), the Detroit Comedy Festival, the Great American Comedy Festival (at the Johnny Carson theater) and the Clean Comedy Challenge- where he won several awards.

Beningo has shared the stage with many of his comedic heroes. He regularly tours with Frank Caliendo, and has opened for Greg Giraldo, Rocky Laporte, Jimmy Brogan, John Heffron and Jim Breuer. He has performed in some of the top clubs in the country, including Gotham Comedy Club in New York City, Zanies in Chicago, Comedy Store in Los Angeles, and nationwide in the Improv and Funny Bone Comedy Club chain.

In addition to stand up, Andy Beningo has starred in a very popular commercial for Pay Anywhere, and landed a small role in the film The End of The Tour starring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg.
