Always adept at making shrewd, balanced and very funny political observations, Maxwell was one of the first comics at the 2011 Edinburgh Festival to react to the riots in England and the Arab Spring and evolve his act accordingly to rave reviews and a nomination. He performed his 2012 Edinburgh show That’s The Spirit at the Assembly Rooms George Square to sell out audiences. Andrew also performed at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival (including a performance at the televised American Dream gala).

He also had a four part Radio 4 series, Andrew Maxwell’s Public Enemies.
Andrew presented an authored documentary for BBC3, Conspiracy Coach Trip: 9/11 (with Renegade Pictures) which aired around the 10 year anniversary of the events and attracted huge attention. Andrew has appeared on recent series of BBC’s Have I Got News For You, ITV2’S Celebrity Juice, the Dave Channel’s Argumental, BBC2’s Mock The Week and R4’s The Now Show, cementing his reputation as one of the country’s most sought after comedians.
