Andy Beningo, named “Best Comedian” by the Detroit Metro Times, has been heard on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show and on XM Sirius Radio. He was a finalist on CMT's ‘Next Big Comic,’ and has appeared on the NBC affiliate show, ‘Night Shift with Kevin Ferguson.’ He was the warm up act for Betty White at the Gilda Laugh Festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan and has performed at the Johnny Carson Theater at the Great American Comedy Festival and Detroit Comedy Festival. In addition, he’s appeared on the Comedy Time Network, on Comcast Cable and on MavTV. He became a favorite on Rooftop Comedy, where his material was highlighted on three different series, including Comedy Cut Outs- an animated series. In 2012, he was tapped to host the National College Competition presented by TBS at both Michigan State and the University of Michigan.
The Duluth Tribune raved about Beningo’s act, saying “he prides himself in clean material, and is extremely funny.” His energetic act centers around growing up as the middle child, technology, life as a college student, fast food restaurants, and a short lived career as a middle school teacher.
Now, Beningo continues to be a touring work horse, performing in some 250 shows a year in corporate events, colleges, theaters, churches and casinos. He works some of the top comedy clubs in the country, including Dangerfield's in New York City, Zanies in Chicago, the Improv and Funny Bone Comedy Club chain. He has been the opening act for his childhood hero Dave Coulier (Full House), as well as the late great Greg Giraldo, Saturday Night Live’s Jim Breuer, MAD-TV star Frank Caliendo, Comedy Central's Carlos Mencia and Maria Bamford, Last Comic Standing winners John Heffron and Jon Reep, and comedy legends Gilbert Gottfried, Jimmy Brogan, Emo Philips and many more!
