Biography

Andrew Daly wasn't the flashiest comedian. One of his first childhood impressions was of "60 Minutes" (CBS, 1968- ) resident curmudgeon Andy Rooney, and neither a well-received performance with partner Andy Secunda at the 1999 Aspen Comedy Festival, or his TV debut on "Spin City" (ABC, 1996-2002) ignited his fledgling career. A brief stint in the early 2000s on the sketch comedy series "MADtv" (FOX, 1995-2009) was marked by unassuming straight man roles and thankless supporting parts. But with a strong background in improv comedy (he trained in New York City with both the Upright Citizen's Brigade and Chicago City Limits) and a deep commitment to characters both unassuming and unstable, in the mid-2000s Daly began piecing together a career that spanned television, movies, and the Internet. Both his 2008 debut comedy album, 9 Sweaters, which showcased nine different characters, and his side-career as a voiceover artist on shows such as HBO's "The Life & Times of Tim" (2008-2012) gave Daly even more opportunities to stretch his creative muscles. Sure, he looks more like a suburban math teacher than a trailblazing comic talent, but Daly's razor-sharp ability to play it straight is the key to his success.

"It’s so cliché, but I love the feeling you get from improv that anything can happen...There is an incredible artistry to all of these people getting on the same page and agreeing to create something new that will never exist again, and that nobody is writing down, and just making a theater piece before an audience’s eyes." - from FastCoCreate.com, Jul. 17, 2012
