His work performance is second to none, his material is ever evolving and improving and he is continuously integrating new material into his acts.
One of his goals that he strives to achieve is not telling the rodeo jokes that you here repeatedly at rodeos, while these jokes are funny, you don’t want to lose your crowd when hearing the same jokes year after year. It’s an extraordinary compliment when a roper came up to him after an act and said, “Man, we have been to a lot of rodeos and seen a lot of clowns, and you even had us laughing”. When you have the contestants laughing, you know you are doing something right.
Doing something right he is, he travels with more than 15 working acts. His acts use current trends and hot topics that bring great crowd involvement. The acts vary from the trendy Duck Dynasty, and Jackass stunts to some old school acts that haven’t been seen for decades. This wide variety of entertainment shows his versatility as an entertainer. Andy is just as effective at making an audience laugh when using a pantomime act as he is when using the announcer for commentary.
Several of Andy’s acts also include the use of live animals, from the mini-horse and donkey to a lion tamer act, with the world’s most dangerous mini-lion. With the help of his horse trainer wife, Robyn, Andy has lined up some of the most talented horses that are sure to impress your crowd and give them that extra added value of entertainment.
