Watch Andy in action
Kind is a terrific MC!'
Westminster Chapel, London
'Andy won us all from the 'get go'! His dazzling humour was pacy, real, self-critical, teasing, and hilarious! Waves of laughter from a crowd of 150 plus. He's inventive, playful, totally original, with a 'knock-out' spiritual punch to finish with. What a buzz!'
'MC Andy Kind was absolutely hilarious!'
Crown Church, Hillingdon
'I laughed, cried, laughed some more. Andy was hilarious. His opening routine was totally off-the-cuff as he bantered with the audience - this spontaneous comedy was genius. As good as anything I've seen on Live at the Apollo'
