Andy Woodhull

When: Dec. 21-23 2016

The comedian Andy Woodhull, who recently released his third stand-up album, Step Parenting, is well named. He comes across like an Andy, an affable type with an open face and a benign air. That makes it more funny to see his churlishness slip out, as when he slow-burns about his wife's euphemistic protestations that she's just "rinsing off" or "only resting my eyes." Wondering about the purpose of clear nail polish, he strikes a note of Carlin-esque bemusement. On Jimmy Fallon, where he made his TV debut, he delivered a bit about head lice with just the right touch of reasonability before veering into a rumination on the fickle nature of friendship. Even treading familiar stand-up territory—sex, exes, body horror, and such—Woodhull's an experienced joke teller with a willingness to step outside convention, making comedic hay out of his own experience of being a stepparent and other complicated subjects. — David Klein
