Andrew J. Lederer
Andrew became a comedian as a teenager and acted in such movies and television programs as FAMILY TIES, THE FACTS OF LIFE, and FAME in addition to starring roles in the movies OUT OF CONTROL and BODY COUNT (and an excised scene - later restored on DVD - in SPINAL TAP).
A prominent "alternative" performer (and producer), his projects include the long-running SECOND SHOW and the one-person shows, PETULA CLARK"S GREATEST HITS, BRIDGE-BURNER, and ME AND HITLER, all presented at the Edinburgh Festival.
Andrew has appeared in motion pictures and on network television, written books, edited magazines, sung his heart out and made the people laugh, yet he is humble still. A man of the people.

"extremely funny . . . highly insightful" - The Stage
"Possesses a wry erudition that could turn the dullest dinner party into the social event of the decade." - Metro
"Very funny and whimsically prismatic." - Three Weeks
