Andrew Wegleitner
Andrew Wegleitner produces and hosts stand up shows in the Experimental Thinking Center Theater at Brave New Workshop. It is the oldest  satirical comedy theater in the nation, and one of the most reputable. He started doing stand-up at The Comedy Club on State in Madison, WI, but for the first couple years his career saw little success as his crippling alcoholism prevented him from delivering a solid performance or having the clear thinking and motivation to put together any decent written material. In 2011 he was given "The Nick Nolte Award" by his peers in honor of this debilitating handicap. Fortunately, when he started working and studying at an improv theater, he applied the principles he learned to his daily life to help kick the booze. He has now been sober for six years, but he still smokes weed and does mushrooms on occasion.  He placed 2nd in Acme's Funniest Person in the Twin Cities contest, has opened for Louie Anderson and Kevin MacDonald, appeared on the KQ morning radio show, and was accepted into the 10,000 laughs comedy festival. His style of comedy is based on personal experience and introspection, his struggles with addiction, and the woes of working and performing. It's self deprecating but high energy and fun at times with plenty of crazy antics and silly one liners interlaced. He's funny, you'll laugh at his shit. I would recommend booking him for your show.
