Andrew Schulz

Sep 14 - Sep 16, 2017

Native New Yorker ANDREW SCHULZ is known for his hilariously edgy, street-smart, and unapologetic comedy. He currently stars opposite Tony Danza and Jane Levy on Paul Reiser’s THERE’S… JOHNNY! on NBC’s Seeso network. He can most recently be seen starring in BENDERS for IFC, and just wrapped a guest star spot on Amazon’s SNEAKY PETE. He is in the midst of shooting two features: Whitney Cummings’ THE FEMALE BRAIN, and A+ opposite Emily Mortimer and Gemma Arterton. MTV has handpicked Schulz as their new tastemaker – he hosted “The Hook-Up” and “Jobs That Don’t Suck” for MTV2 and has been writing and commentating on MTV2’s hit “Guy Code,” the highest rated show in the network’s history.
