In high school, Andy’s performing interests grew to include theater, which led to several performing scholarships and a BA in Theater from the nationally-ranked University of Washington School of Drama. After moving to the Bay Area, Andy continued his study of performance at the San Francisco Clown Conservatory, where he added the arts of slapstick, acrobatics, and physical comedy to his repertoire. Shortly thereafter, Andy developed a love for fitness and martial arts, eventually leading him to Thailand to study under world kung fu champion Iain Armstrong.

Today, Andy is an innovator in his field, captivating kids with smart, action-packed entertainment that speaks up to their natural intelligence and leaves them rolling on the floor with laughter. In addition to magic, comedy, and balloon twisting, all of Andy’s shows include interactive, movement-based games and activities designed to experientially show kids how fun physical activity can be. Andy says. “I hear kids complain about having to exercise, but those complaints seem to vanish when there’s an incentive of getting to level up their superhero skills, learn lightsaber choreography, or practice ninja moves. Schools rarely show kids how physical activity relates to their interests, so that’s where I come in.”

Andy always features the birthday child as a special helper at his shows, ensuring that your little guy or girl will get to feel like a rock star in front of all their friends on their special day. By making your child the star of the show while engaging all their friends, Andy gives you a well-deserved opportunity to sit back, relax with the other parents, and enjoy watching your little one have the time of their life. Andy has extensive experience working with shy children and is happy to take special needs into account, ensuring that there will be a comfortable level of engagement available for everyone at your party.

Andy also offers a 100% money-back guarantee that your birthday boy or girl will have the time of their lives at an Andy Zandy birthday party. Best of all, he fully embraces the responsibility he shoulders as a kid’s party entertainer: “They’re little for such a short time and birthdays are so important to them. My job is to make their special day something magical that they’ll talk about for months afterwards..
