The funnyman, Andrew Schulz, born on October 30, 1983, started his career as the hilarious host of a series of original programming on M.T.V. before he made it big as an international stand-up comedian. He started doing stand-up comedy in college in California and continued when he moved back to New York in the mid-2000s. He became a regular in the Comedy Village before making his debut at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in 2008 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Even though he began on a major television network, Schulz has achieved considerable success by self-releasing his work, including one of his most recent comedy specials. And today, we’re celebrating him.
Andrew Schulz is a busy guy as a stand-up comedian, actor, television producer, and podcaster. He is mainly known for his work on multiple M.T.V. shows: the “Flagrant 2” podcast and the “Brilliant Idiots” podcast. And in 2020, he celebrated the release of his first Netflix special, “Schulz Saves America.”
This multifaceted funnyman was born in New York City, grew up in Lower Manhattan’s East Village, and attended New York City Public Schools. He had a somewhat regular and average childhood before he went on to college and earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. This served him well in terms of his career and comedic skills, as he found it easy to assess and comment on people, their behavior, and their place in society — everything you need to create jokes and humorous narratives.
Schulz went on to self-release his debut comedy special, “4:4:1,” on YouTube in September 2017 and almost instantly gained a large and dedicated following. In June 2018, Schulz released his debut comedy album, “5:5:1,” to rave reviews, and it debuted at the top of iTunes’ comedy album charts. The album eventually peaked at number one on Apple Music, Google Play, and Amazon, making him an overnight sensation to anyone who had not yet been exposed to him. On-screen, Schulz has hosted or featured in several MTV programs, including “Guy Code” (2011), “Guy Court” (2013), and “The Hook Up” (2013). He has also appeared in the IFC series “Benders” (2015), “Sneaky Pete” (2015), and “Crashing” (2017). He recently popped up in the news for refusing to censor his comedy special for Amazon, self-releasing it, and earning $1 million for doing that.
