Andrew Fisher

Andrew Fisher is a writer and stand-up comedian. A Stand-Up NBC finalist, he has been expanding his audiences by performing at colleges and universities across the country. As far as he can tell, being a deaf comedian is no different from being a hearing one. He writes jokes, he travels, and he sometimes even has hecklers — or so he’s told.

In addition to writing for the Chris Gethard Presents show, Fisher has developed and written a webseries entitled (un)Settled. He also has written and produced the comedic short film Plan Z, in which a couple who slips up has to decide: would they want to keep this theoretical pregnancy, or should they go find Plan B? Also, it takes place in a post-apocalyptic world full of zombies and stuff.

Fisher is represented by Sophie K Entertainment.


After an extensive search and interview process, 30 individuals were invited to participate in RespectAbility’s Summer 2020 Lab for Entertainment Professionals. This 5-week, 15-session virtual summer Lab series for people interested in – and with experience in – development, production and post-production, including careers as writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, animators and other production roles, will take place June 16 – July 16, 2020. Participants include diverse people with physical, cognitive, sensory, mental health and other disabilities. Learn more:

  • Platinum Sponsors: Murray/Reese Foundation and The Walt Disney Company
  • Gold Sponsors: Cast & Crew, Comcast NBCUniversal and Final Draft
