Andrew J. Andrist (born August 19, 1965 in Coquille, Oregon), is an American stand-up comedian and former writer for Comedy Central's The Man Show.
Andrist is also one of the original members of Doug Stanhope's comedy group known as The Unbookables. Other members of the Unbookables include Sean Rouse, Henry Phillips, Otto & George, James Inman, Tom Rhodes, Auggie Smith, Lynn Shawcroft, Neil Hamburger, Travis Lipski, Brendon Walsh, Joey Diaz, Norman Wilkerson, Kristine Levine, Brett Erickson, and others.
Both Andrist's debut CD Dumb It Down for the Masses and follow-up benefit CD Morbid Obscenity with fellow Unbookables Doug Stanhope, Sean Rouse, and Lynn Shawcroft was recorded and put out by Dan Schlissel's Stand Up! Records.
Following the departure of Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla from Comedy Central's The Man Show in 2003, Andrist was hired as a writer and performer alongside comedians Doug Stanhope and Joe Rogan.
In May 2008, Andrist filmed a set for an episode of HBO's Down and Dirty with Jim Norton. The four-part special features young comedians as well as several established headliners, including Artie Lange, Patrice O'Neal, Andrew 'Dice' Clay, Bill Burr, Jim Florentine, Ari Shaffir, and fellow Unbookable Sean Rouse among others.
