Andy Beningo, named “BEST COMEDIAN” by the Detroit Metro Times, is a regular guest on the nationally syndicated BOB AND TOM RADIO SHOW. He has been heard on XM SIRIUS RADIO and over seas on the AMERICAN FORCES NETWORK.. He was a final 4 finalist on CMT's 'NEXT BIG COMIC,' and has appeared on the NBC affiliate show, 'NIGHT SHIFT WITH KEVIN FERGUSON."

He became a favorite on Rooftop Comedy, where his material was highlighted on three different series, including Comedy Cut Outs- an animated series. In 2012, he was tapped to host the National College Competition presented by TBS at both Michigan State and the University of Michigan.
The Duluth Tribune raved about Beningo's act, saying “he prides himself in clean material, and is extremely funny.” His energetic act centers around growing up as the middle child, technology, life as a college student, fast food restaurants, and a short lived career as a middle school teacher.
