Welcome veteran comedian and notorious troublemaker Andy Kindler.  He has had a thirty year career in comedy and has appeared on everything from Letterman to Fox’s hit animation, Bob’s Burgers. He is also known for playing the life affirming character “Andy” on the CBS sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond.  Andy wrote the Hack’s Handbook for National Lampoon — a satirized guide that exposed tired comedy formulas. 
Don’t miss his first appearance in Winnipeg since the late 80’s!
