SPOKEN WORD: Comedy, FOLK: Traditional Folk
This is the second nothing-but-storytelling album from noted storyteller and songwriter, Andy Offutt Irwin.A native of Covington, GA, Andy started out in comedy, but added music and storytelling because he had a lot more to say. He tours a lot, but when he’s home he gets to be the Artist-In-Residence at Oxford College of Emory University where he directs plays from time to time. He spent five years writing, directing and performing with the comedy improv troupe, SAK Theatre at Walt Disney World, but he’s had lots of more interesting life experience-type jobs including – but not limited to – actor; camp counselor; political satirist; youth director; janitor; deputy voter registrar; theatre orchestra conductor; garbage man; teacher; carpenter’s flunky; and bullfrog tadpole catcher (Honest).
Andy was a Featured Teller at the 2005 National Storytelling Festival (he’ll be back in 2007). He has been a Featured Teller at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Orem, UT; The San Francisco Bay Area Storytelling Festival; Cave Run Storytelling Festival, Morehead, KY; The Sweet Pea Festival, Bozeman, MT; The Stitching Stars Festival, Athens, GA; Hoosier Storytelling Festival, Indianapolis, IN; The Mesa, AZ Storytelling Festival; The Ojai, CA Storytelling Festival; The Winter Tale Festival, Oklahoma, OK; TaleSpin Festival, Chattanooga, TN; The St. Louis Storytelling Festival; The Azalea Storytelling Festival, LaGrange, GA…um…that’s enough.
With a manic Silly Putty voice, astonishing mouth noises,
and hilarious stories, he is equal parts mischievous school boy
and the Marx Brothers,
peppered with a touch of the Southern balladeer.
Andy is one vibrantly odd bird,
with feathers that tease, tickle
and tug at the heart –
And a whopper of a personality,
which barely fits in most rooms.
People are drawn to him
like magnets to a refrigerator.
it''s all Mountain Dew and Jolt Cola.
