The Punch Up Guy IS comedian/bestselling author/screenwriter/producer/actor/public speaker Andy Wasif. He has been involved in comedy for over two decades, first stepping on stage during his sophomore year in college and penning his first sitcom spec script (a “Fresh Prince of Bel Air”) the same year. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Syracuse University (in upstate New York).
Since then, he has performed in clubs and colleges in exactly half of the states in the United States and one province in Canada. He also has spent several years training and performing at renowned theaters Improv Olympic and Upright Citizens Brigade.
After leaving the stand-up comedy road and returning to Los Angeles, he has remained active in a variety of roles using his comedic skills for good instead of evil. This includes teaching a stand-up comedy course to kids ages 8-14, writing speeches for corporate executives, participating in comedy roasts, penning jokes for all levels of comics including his fellow professionals, and doing movie and television show script coverage for networks and production companies alike.
