Andy Short

Andy Short performs with The ImprovBoston Family Show. He has a myriad of other pursuits that include teaching children theater, playing "cutesy" video games with his girlfriend, and thinking about starting a business one day. One time he biked across the country for charity -but don't get him started because you won't hear the end of it. This is his attempt at a comedy website bio that is 1 part flippant, 1 part informative, and 1 part humble-braggy. He really hopes he hit a respectable balance and especially that you enjoyed reading it!
