Comedian Andy Kindler

Penguin’s Comedy Club – Fri, Sat, March 6-7 at 7:30 p.m.

Comedian Andy Kindler has crossed over into television success in recent years with appearances on shows like Bob’s Burgers and Maron, but he hasn’t strayed from his stand-up comedy roots. Kindler, a veteran of the comedy club scene, performs at Penguin’s Comedy Club Friday and Saturday, March 6 and 7 at 7:30 p.m.

“I’ll go anywhere that I’m wanted, as long as it’s fun,” Kindler said. “I’ve been going to Penguin’s in one form or the other since the early ’90s. I will always go back to places [where] I have a good time.”

Aside from enjoying and performing comedy, Kindler plays the Belcher’s family’s business neighbor Mort on Bob’s Burgers. Kindler said he was given the opportunity to work on Bob’s Burgers by show creator Loren Bouchard, who wrote him into the pilot. Bouchard had worked previously with Kindler on his first TV series, ’90s cult favorite Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist.

While staying busy with voice acting, guest appearances and touring, Kindler is also in the process of finishing his new album, Hence the Humor, which he expects to be out later this summer.

“I’ve been very lucky. Stand up is frightening at first, but the last couple of years, things are just starting to click together,” Kindler said.
