Andy Storey brings his new show AWKWARD to Just The Tonic throughout August making his debut full fringe hour. Journeying into his misanthropic and awkward past, Andy’s delicious slant on social encounters is a wicked quagmire of self-mortification… "it's alright when you're in the house with the curtains closed, but when you have to step outside..." From his habit of ‘double vesting’ to the horrors of being the sober guest at a party, Andy explores the predicaments of the everyday with a “slick relaxed deliver [and] wry punchlines efficiently packed in keeping the audience laughing.” (Chortle. BBC Comedy Awards 2015). His deliciously dry sense of humour and effortless performance style has marked him out as one of the most idiosyncratic and refreshing voices on the scene. Not your typical northern working class comic, Andy Storey began stand-up in 2010 and since then has found himself in the final of six major competitions. Notably ‘One to Watch’ runner-up at the world famous, Up The Creek Comedy Club, Leicester Square New act of the year and the highly prestigious BBC Radio New Comedy Award 2015. "Sharp and funny... with a wistful Alan Bennett quality." The Herald
