Andy Wood

Since abandoning a career in electrical engineering in favor of comedy over a decade ago, Andy Wood has appeared on "Portlandia," Science Channel's "How To Build... Everything" and the Comedy Central feature film "Jason Nash Is Married," and performed at Bumbershoot, SF Sketchfest, Bentzen Ball and High Plains Comedy Festival. Along with Matt Kirshen, he hosts the weekly podcast "Probably Science," which in its first six years has featured guest luminaries from the worlds of comedy and science including Neil DeGrasse Tyson, International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield, theoretical cosmologist Dr. Janna Levin and Gallagher, for some reason.

Andy is the founder and director of the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, which in its ten-year run helped put Portland, Oregon on the comedy map and showcased the world's top comedians including Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, Marc Maron, Janeane Garofalo, Nick Kroll and over 800 other performers. He's written for and produced shows including MTV's "Ridiculousness," Science Channel's "How To Build... Everything," YouTube Red's "Mind Field," E!'s "Love You, Mean It" with Whitney Cummings, Fuse's "Trivial Takedown" and "The MTV Movie Awards."

In 2017 Andy and fellow comedian TJ Chambers launched the podcast "Twinsies," which takes a look at what happens when Hollywood has the same idea twice (think "Deep Impact" and "Armageddon"). Andy's also an avid pub quiz fan, having written trivia for NBC's "The Wall" and the short-lived live online game show "1 vs. 100" on XBox Live, and he hopes to retire one day on his HQ Trivia winnings.
