Corporate comedy

He was born in New York City, grew up in Japan, went to boarding school in Switzerland and university in California.
Andy has a BA and MA in International Relations and was going to be a diplomat until he discovered that diplomats can't say what they REALLY think, so he became a stand-up comedian instead.

As a writer he has written for the New York Times, Maxim, Cosmopolitan, CBS, ABC, BBC and is a regular contributor to Huffington Post.

Andy currently lives in Cologne.

I had the pleasure to welcome Mr. Andy Valvur at our annual Deutsche Telekom Group Security Conference 2015, which is the greatest international gathering of security directors and managers from all around the DT world. Andy’s excellent stand-up comedy performance and bright and spot-on humor set a perfect scene for the event’s transition into the social and networking part and based on the participants’ feedback, it has been also recognized as one of the conference highlights. Andy is truly a big professional and I can fully recommend him for any similar event." Radek Havlis, Deutsche Telekom AG, Vice President Security Cooperation
