Since reaching the final of So You Think You're Funny? in 1999, Andy Zaltzman has been carving his niche as one of today's most original and incisive political comedians

A headline act on The Comedy Network's UK wide club tour from 2000-2006, Andy performed his debut solo show Andy Zaltzman versus The Dog Of Doom which saw a Perrier nomination for Best Newcomer and a three week run at London's Canal Cafe Theatre. Hit solo Edinburgh Fringe shows Andy Zaltzman Unveils The 2002 Catapult of Truth (2002, naturally) and Andy Zaltzman Unravels The Great Conspiracy (2003) followed.

In 2002, Andy teamed up with fellow comedians John Oliver and Chris Addison to write and record a pilot for political comedy The Department for BBC Radio 4, which was subsequently picked up for three series.

The partnership with Oliver continued as they co-wrote and performed Edinburgh Fringe shows Erm... It's About The World... I Think You'd Better Sit Down (2004) and Andy Zaltzman and John Oliver Issue a Series of Demands And Await Your Response With Interest . At the same time they also co-hosted the satirical late-night revue Political Animal at The Stand, which was later turned into a BBC Radio 4 series.

Andy's TV and radio appearances include BBC3's The Comic Side of 7 Days , BBC4's The Late Edition and BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz and Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive. He has also contributed his considerable writing skills to Channel 4's Bremner, Bird and Fortune.
