Andy Beningo, named “Best Comedian” by the Detroit Metro Times, is a regular guest on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show. He has been heard on XM Sirius Radio and over seas on the American Forces Network. He was a final four finalist on CMT's ‘Next Big Comic,’ and has appeared on the NBC affiliate show, ‘Night Shift with Kevin Ferguson.’ He performed at Gilda's Laugh Festival in Grand Rapids, MI, where he was the warm up act for Betty White. Other festival appearances include the Detroit Comedy Festival, the Great American Comedy Festival at the Johnny Carson Theater, and the Clean Comedy Festival- where he was voted an "audience favorite" and named "Best New Comer" to the festival. He has also 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. In 2013, he won the Clean Guy's Unbleepable Contest, and his stand up clip on text messaging premiered before Dave Coulier's Clean Guys of Comedy movie- which was in over 600 theaters nationwide.
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 and casinos. He has performed in some of the top comedy clubs in the country, including Gotham Comedy Club in New York City, Zanies in Chicago, Comedy Store in Los Angeles, and nationwide in the Improv and Funny Bone Comedy Club chain. He regularly tours with MAD-TV star Frank Caliendo, and has shared the stage with his childhood hero Dave Coulier (Full House), the late great Greg Giraldo, Saturday Night Live’s Jim Breuer, 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!
In addition to stand up, Andy Beningo has starred in a very popular commercial for Pay Anywhere, and landed a small role in the film The End of The Tour starring Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg.
