Bio

Andre H Arruda is an actor, comedian, storyteller and a physically disability advocate.

Born & raised in Kitchener Ontario Canada, Andre moved to Toronto in 2001 to attend Humber College’s School of Comedy writing and Performance program. Since then he has not looked back, appearing in Television/Films and performing stand up all over Canada and parts of the USA, destroying stereotypes with silliness and laughter.

His comedy is comprised mostly of stories and rants about all the “Handicrap,” he deals with daily as a physically disabled, three foot something man living in a world of giants. However, Andre is not a “disabled comedian” but a comedian who happens to have a disability.

In fall of 2015 Arruda went through much needed spinal surgery that took him out of show biz for 6 months and almost ended his life twice. He is currently making his comeback into the stand up world while producing his soon to be released One Man Show, Andre’s Last Time Standing… Maybe? that he filmed last August before his surgery. *Spoiler Alert* He’s still Standing.
