Finalist 4

Grabbed the judges eyes and made into the final of Witty and Twisted.

Andrew Wallace - Wonderworld

Andrew Wallace Andrew Wallace, 37, is the Facilities Manager at the London Eye. Talking about work Andrew says, "I get really excited about vending and stationery. Well, not so excited about vending anymore, the dream died when I got carte blanche to install the vending system I have always dreamed of and everyone has just bitched about it, really loudly, for about three months now and I am on a hair-trigger, a hair-trigger I tell you. But stationery is still sweeeeet... don't get me started on the smell of new paper or those really toxic pens that have been a staple of my spiritual development since school."

When he’s not managing facilities, Andrew can often be found doing stand-up on the London comedy circuit. "I remembered that people have always laughed at me, whether I have wanted them to or not, in fact especially when not - for example when I am trying to be a Great Leader at work. When everyone in the company said how funny my Health & Safety emails were a little light went on and I thought, 'Oh, yeah, comedy. That's what I've always loved. Why didn't I think of it before? Am I slow? Who am I talking to?'" Since 2005 Andrew has done about 200 gigs on the London comedy circuit and is the proud winner of Loo of the Year 2006 (Water & Theme Parks National Category). The two are not related however.

Sketch: Wonderworld is a sitcom set in a down-at-heal theme park in the South of England.
