Andrew Polk is a stand-up comedian and improviser with The New Movement. Polk was raised in the backwoods of North Louisiana, where he learned to live, laugh, love, and then get the hell out of there. A resident of New Orleans for over a year, he describes the city as “largely problematic” as bars don’t close, and parallel parking is required in almost all situations.
Many of Polk’s influences can be found by turning on the television anytime in the mid-90′s. Once he saw a blimp. Catch Andrew Polk hosting “Baffling Ordeal” a stand-up showcase for touring comedians, or tweet along with him and the live action movie club @FilmInstant every Monday at 10pm CST.
