Stand-up comedian Shaun Eli has rightfully been called one of America’s smartest comics. Whether it’s a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket, master storyteller Shaun Eli shows you that there’s hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Job interviews? Serving on a NYC criminal jury? How about the Ten Commandments? For just about anything he’s experienced Shaun has a hilarious story at the ready.
Shaun performs regularly at theatres in NY.
Shaun’s father worked for the Internal Revenue Service (in NYC, not in Washington, DC) and yes Shaun has stories about that. When your dad works for the IRS and your friends’ parents think they have to hide the new TV when you come over…
As the child of a civil servant Shaun has great respect for government officials and he never complains about paying taxes. Once Shaun was at a conference where an expert on The Beatles was speaking. The speaker said that the album “Revolver” was kind of innovative for The Beatles because it had only one love song. Shaun went up to him afterwards and said “I disagree. From the point of view of the IRS, “Tax Man” IS a love song!”

His first time on stage Wali was convinced that he had bombed, but the manager paid him and asked him to come back every week as a featured act. Wali moved to New York City to work on a show for Comedy Central called “Stand-up Stand-up”. He hosted the largest, funniest, most varied collection of stand-up comedians in the world.
Nominated three years in a row as “College Campus Entertainer of the Year,” Wali is also sought after for corporate events. One of Wali’s greatest achievements was hosting an event for First Lady Michelle Obama. Collins’ television stand-up credits include NBC, CBS, FOX, HBO, ABC’s “The View”, Comedy Central’s Tough Crowd and Commentary on VH1. David Letterman caught Wali’s act and recruited him to warm-up for his show. Later that season Wali performed his stand up on the Late Show with David Letterman. In the words of Robert Klein, “Wali Collins is versatile, smart and very, very funny.”
Wali’s father was a former Marine Drill Instructor and yes, Wali has stories about that. How could he not?
Comedian Andy Pitz performs clean comedy but not that boring kind. It’s fresh, relatable and very funny. Andy talks about his twenty years in standup, a long marriage to a neurotic woman, and small everyday things like how the world is perceived by our weird human mind. Andy can do this in a funny way even though he is not famous. Look at his picture. “I think I saw this guy at a comedy club one time…” Yes, you probably have. Andy’s been based in New York City since 1997 and has been performing professionally since 1991.
In 2003 Andy made his television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman, and a month later he was on CBS’s Star Search, where he was eliminated from the semi-finals in a total ripoff. Andy also did standup in 2007 on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson where he was asked to sign the guest book backstage. Sweet.
Having clean material allows Andy to work for a wide range of audiences. Standup comedy venues enjoy his energy and uniqueness. The corporate show crowd and even houses of worship appreciate cleaner subject matter and shows where anyone could be there and have fun.
Andy’s second live comedy recording, “More Mr. Nice Guy”, was released in November 2010 and is played in heavy rotation on Sirius Satellite Radio’s clean comedy station “Laugh USA”.
In and around New York City, Andy performs at the most well-known clubs and also the more obscure rooms, with the goal of working at least four nights a week. He could be at Comic Strip Live, Gotham Comedy Club, Caroline’s, Dangerfield’s, or the Underground Lounge, Zinc Bar, or a youth hostel on any given weekday evening.
When road trips happen they are headlining engagements across the U.S. and Canada. Andy has toured China, performed in Woodstock New York and it’s very likely he’s appeared in the Netherlands.

Andy Hendrickson, who grew up in Springfield, Virginia (Fairfax County) is a comedian, writer and actor that built his career in New York City. He now resides in Los Angeles. He has a clever, conversational style that has been engaging audiences for over 15 years. His material is based on real life experiences and his anecdotes are laced with a hearty disapproval. He doesn’t really know what that means either.
Andy has a matter-of-fact sense of humor and specializes in highlighting life’s silly details. One reviewer said it best, “He’s the exasperated guy next door.” But hey, don’t take my word for it, I’m just a broke college student that Andy paid $5, on a freelancer website, to make this thing sound good. Instead, watch one of his many clips from his TV appearances.
He’s had multiple TV appearances including: The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Gotham Comedy Live, NBC/Seeso’s The Guest List and more. Internationally, Andy has performed at clubs and festivals throughout the world, including Canada, England, Holland and Ireland. He also performed for our troops on Outback’s Feeding Freedom Tour that provided entertainment for the troops on military bases across Afghanistan. His comedy CD “Underachiever” recently released to rave reviews and debuted in the iTunes Top 10.
