Andrew Kennedy was born in Bogota, Colombia. He spent most of his formative years in South America, the Caribbean and the Far East. His mother is Colombian and father British, neither of which could understand the other (this helped Andrew and his brothers to become very fluent in both English and Spanish.) By the time he was thirteen Andrew had lived in Colombia, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Hong Kong, the United States, returned once more to Venezuela and then finally settled in New Canaan, Connecticut (his father got fired a lot.) He joined the National Guard his junior year in high school and at 17 was the youngest one in his battalion at Fort Sill Oklahoma, were he learned from drill sergeant Diaz that he couldn't "take it all back..." He finished basic training then went off to complete university and decided to use his degree in Managerial Communications to became a comedian and not make any money for a very, very long time (he did however get to make fun of drill Sergeant Diaz, something that hopefully won't come back to haunt him if they ever open up a Funny Bones in Lawton, Oklahoma) Andrew has continued to travel the world (now as a successful comedian) been voted one of the top twenty comedians on Comedy Central two years in a row; developed, produced and starred in his own television pilot for CBS (more... ) all while raising three non-dysfunctional children with his wife Amy and their Golden/Labrador Retriever (and part St Bernard!!) Sampson, who still has not figured out he is unable to "Tidy Up" any of the many messes he makes around the house and seems always surprised to find himself caught by the process of elimination (he was the only one there...duh!) and the overabundance of dog hair at the scene matching his, in hue and texture.
