Andre’s individual style has taken him across the scope of the performance medium: a Saturday night show on Channel 4, three sell-out runs at the Edinburgh festival, countless radio shows, presenter of two award nominated television programmes, a regular face on daytime panel games and even an appearance as himself on the children’s drama ‘Byker Grove’.
Moments treasured in André’s career so far include:
1) Singing ‘Ooh Ah Just A Little Bit’ on TV with Miss UK
2) Teaching Cliff Richard to unicycle Performing at a Vietnamese refugee camp in the South China Sea (booked by the Chinese Government)
3) Opening for Bob Hope (Bing Crosby spins in his grave even now…)

“He possesses the energy of Lee Evans with the improvisational Skills of Paul Merton and is one of the best comedians in the business.” – The Times
“Ferociously funny” – The Sunday Times
“This guy should be on prime time telly” – Chortle.co.uk
“André Vincent was also there” – The Chinese People’s Press
A quickfire gag merchant (described by the List magazine as a “Pun-osaurus”) whose one-liners and short stories cover a wide spectrum of subjects, his quick wit has made him a sought after act and compere by Christian Knowles, The Comedy Company, Mirth Control and other promoters around the UK; performing opening, middle and, increasingly, headline spots.
As well as performing, Tony is also a prolific writer; his credits include “Watson’s Wind Up” for BBC Radio Scotland, “Newsjack” for BBC7 and he is also the chief comedy writer for Bristol based Jack FM. In 2008 he co-scripted a series of popular Christmas podcasts featuring Tony Blackburn, Christopher Biggins and Lesley Joseph and he regularly contributes to satirical news website “The Daily Mash” and TV comedian, Mark Watson’s football site, “Back of the Net”.
“My favourite joke of the Festival so far was told to me by a Suffolk stand-up comedian and die-hard Ipswich fan Tony Cowards” – Hardeep Singh Kohli, The Scotsman on Sunday (and BBC1’s “The ONE Show”)
Rob is making waves across the stand-up comedy circuit, despite being a relative newcomer. His livewire, upbeat nature is the perfect crowd relaxant, and he’s got more energy than a five year old on Red Bull.
One to watch.
