LA comedian to perform standup at Peninsula College

Andy Hendrickson hits the stage at 7 p.m. Friday

PORT ANGELES — Los Angeles comedian Andy Hendrickson will bring his act to the Maier Performance Hall stage at 7 tonight at Peninsula College.

It is the first of three comedy shows planned by the Associated Student Council for the 2019-20 school year at the Port Angeles campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

Admission is free to Peninsula College students and by donation to employees and community members.

“Andy Hendrickson has a sharp, witty sense of humor that I feel will appeal very well to our students at PC,” said Elita Nivens, ASC vice president of programming.

“His clear way of speaking and clever way of blending the humor pulls us into the show without realizing it.”

Hendrickson has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Gotham Comedy Live and NBC’s Last Comic Standing,

Not only is Hendrickson performing on comedy stages, but he is also one of the stars of the recently-released movie “The Clean Guys of Comedy.” It was broadcast live in more than 600 theaters nationwide.

Hendrickson has performed all over the world, including a 2011 trip where he entertained U.S. troops on Outback’s Feeding Freedom Tour on military bases across Afghanistan.

His comedy CD “Underachiever” recently released to rave reviews and debuted in the iTunes Top 10.

Prior to his show at Peninsula College, he will perform in Montreal, Canada. After the show, he will be off to Florida, Missouri, California and Minnesota.
