From 1939 until the 1990s, Andrés had regular jobs in theatre. He used his full name as his stage name, however, the people who knew him always called him Angelito de Andrés (Angelito is the familiar form for Ángel).

During the 1940s, Andrés began acting in movies as an extra, but it was not until 1950 that he was first cast serious roles. Throughout his career, Andrés worked in Portugal and Mexico. In the 1950s as a presenter and actor in radio and cinema.

In the 1980s, Andrés starred in numerous comedy films, winning the affection as a humorist and also in the TV series Celia and Lorca la muerte de un poeta of Juan Antonio Bardem. In the 1988 he played the character of Zenón de Somodevilla in Josefina Molina film's Esquilache with Fernando Fernán Gómez and Concha Velasco.
