Laughs Comedy Spot in Kirkland welcomes Andy Kindler March 21-22.

Kindler is known in comedy circles as a troublemaker. Originally from New York, and now complaining from California, he annoys people all over the world. Kindler was also a judge on the seventh season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing.

Kindler is a frequent guest and correspondent for The Late Show with David Letterman. Each summer at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal he delivers the State of the Industry address to a packed ballroom filled with comics and Hollywood industry types. He is infamous for his scathing attacks on the world of entertainment, including the previously taboo practice of making fun of his fellow comedians. Just as the comedy boom of the 1990s was imploding, Kindler wrote the “Hack’s Handbook” for National Lampoon. This “how to” guide satirized and exposed tired comedy formulas.

He is the star of two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials and he currently recurs on IFC’s Maron, Bob’s Burgers and Comedy Central’s Tosh.0. He was also a regular comedy litigator on The Root of all Evil. Other noteworthy credits include the HBO Young Comedians Special, Late Night with Conan O’Brian, The Daily Show, Dr. Katz Professional Therapist, Home Movies, Wizards of Waverly Place, and The Larry Sanders Show. Kindler is often recognized for playing the life-affirming character “Andy” on the CBS sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond.

Showtimes for the show in Kirkland are 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on each night. Tickets are $15.
