*Andy Hendrickson Acclaim and Recommendations*

Andy performed for over an hour keeping the large audience entertained and laughing hysterically throughout the show. Andy was very funny without being inappropriate, which everyone appreciated. He even went as far to ask prior to the show if there were topics to avoid. We plan to have Andy back again and welcome the opportunity to work with him for years to come.

With all of these attributes in mind it is with great pleasure that I recommend Andrew Hendrickson to perform a comedy show for any group or venue large or small. For any further references please do not hesitate to contact me.

Dear Andy,
The Student Activities Board at USAO would like to thank you for your
marvelous comedy performance during our welcome week activities.
We had seen your showcase at various APCA conferences, but your full
comedy performance was even better than we anticipated. The crowd we
had for your show was the largest we have had on campus for any of our
comedians during the last 3 years! Attendance at your performance wasn’t
limited to just students; faculty and staff at the University of Science and
Arts also enjoyed your show.
We absolutely enjoyed your visit and your show! Thank you so much for
coming and we will definitely be booking you again!

Sincerely,
Lori Underwood
Director of Student Activities and Leadership Programs
University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma

Your comedy was a great match for our college audience and we had many people tell us how they could relate to the things you said. I personally have done the empty ice cream box trick many time to annoy my roommates. I know I speak for everyone here at the Board of Campus Activities when I say we appreciate you coming out to make our campus laugh and share your interesting perspective on cacti. Thanks again for your performance and best of luck on your audition.

Andy is a pleasure to work with; he was one of the only artists who took the initiative to e-mail me before the show asking if there was anything I needed from him. He also followed up after the show thanking me for bringing him to campus. It is hard to find a comedian that thoughtful and easy to work with.

We had an amazing turn-out for his show, one of the highest numbers of students to attend a comedian. The students that attended Andy's show on campus really enjoyed themselves. Many students stopped him after the show to tell him they thought it was great and to take pictures with him. It was a very successful show on our campus!

I would recommend Andy Hendrickson for any type of show. He is very easy to work with, our students loved him, and he is hilarious!
