Ventriloquist Andy Greaves

 

Andy Greaves is without doubt, one of the most versatile comedy entertainers in the country with over 30 years experience. And there is no substitute for that.

  Andy's likeable personality on stage is put to great use in his stand-up routine. An excellent comic who loves to interact with the audience, a master of the adlib with a mixture of one liners, jokes and observational comedy about every day life. Add to this, Andy's amazing talent as a ventriloquist with his sidekick Lewis the stork (a cheeky bird who develops a great rapport with both Andy and the audience), you then have an act of the highest quality. Which explains why readers of Venue magazine voted "Andy Greaves" the Midlands top comedy speciality act in 2007.   Andy's style is that of a cheeky, clean comic and with years of working the Clubs, After Dinner Cabaret, Corporate Events, Cruise Ships, Hotels & Holiday Parks. Andy is able to adapt his act to suit most environments. In the past Andy has worked in theatre with Joe Longthorne, Jimmy Cricket and Les Dennis and on the Pantomime Stage with John Inman and Darren Day to name just a few. In 2004 Andy was top of the bill on the Villa Marina summer show in the Isle of Man.   Andy is no stranger to television, making his first TV appearance on Yorkshire Television at the age of just thirteen years old. Since then he has appeared on Granada TV's "Fame Game", Sky TV's "Search for a Star", followed by the TV series "Guys & Dolls". A Saturday night spot alongside Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer on BBC1. Plus TV adverts for IKEA and comedy warm-up for Carlton Television.   Below are just a few of Andy's reviews:   The Stage 'One of the biggest receptions of the evening, went to  Andy Greaves from Worksop, with his cuddly stork, Lewis. Vocalist and vent, the comedy came thick and fast.'   The Stage 'Andy Greaves and Lewis. A comedy vent who is not  only a superb technician, but peddles his odd bird Lewis  with a genuinely funny line in patter.'   Roger Holmes 'The Magic of the Music Hall' The Stage 'Maybe comedy topped the bill - clean, well-timed,  sharp & effective stuff from the personable Andy Greaves  with, from time to time, the dubious help of his feathered  friend Lewis. Nothing antique about this act.'   Bernard Bale 'Cinderella The Cresset Peterborough' The Stage 'Ventriloquist Andy Greaves Playing Baron Hardup deserves  a special mention - he is a seriously underrated performer.'
