My self-summary
They call me the Hiphopopotamus
Flows that glow like phosphorous
Poppin' off the top of this esophagus
Rockin' this metropolis
I'm not a large water-dwelling mammal
Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?
Did Steve tell you that, perchance? Ugh. Steve.

"Who cares what evil lurks in the hearts of men?"

I wonder if I've had any experiences worthy of Risk, or is my life more suited for The Moth. Or maybe I'm more Nightvale than I thought. I'm definately a Nerdist, and dream of a Thrilling Adventure Hour, but as long as nothing would fit into Serial, I think I'm doing alright.

Whenever I see a person walking their puppy, I can't contain the stupid noises that fall out of my face, even mid sentence, because pups are the best.

I am a pirate at heart.

I am attracted to creative and witty minds. Anyone who helps me give the muse to keep my mind sharp and my creative juices flowing, is already beautiful. On the "shallow" end of these things, give me a wee ginger lady with some curves and a killer smile and I'm in.

Also, I'm a ENFP if that's your deal
What I’m doing with my life
Well, I spent far too long in college avoiding the real world, learning theater and education. Got the chance to move to NYC, as actors often do, about four years ago. I joined a family friendly improv comedy group about a month in, and that's what I do. Living the dream as they say.

Come down to the Jekyll & Hyde Pub down in the West Village. I have a blast working there and you would have a blast being there. I'm easy to find. I'm the guy bugging the tourists ;)

I work at New World Stages working the front of house positions. So pretty much I give out programs, make sure people don't take pictures, and watch Avenue Q over and over. It's pretty great.

I work for a professional wrestling company in Connecticut as part as their commentary team and creative. I love it. http://www.ctwepro.com/

Free time is usually video games, movies, tv shows, all that stuff. I play guitar so I try to practice that, and I recently picked up the banjo. Then I put it back down. Not an easy instrument.

On the subway, which is most of my free time, I always have a book handy, along with my trusty iPod with music and podcasts.

Also, follow me on Vine, Twitter, Instagram, Periscope, Snapchat...whatever else: @andyscannell (more shameless plugs)
I’m really good at
Making strangers laugh, video games, improv comedy, goofing off, cooking (see chili), making sound effects, singing, karaoke, doodling, reminiscing, daydreaming & making fart jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor, or my smile.

Or the fact that I almost always have huge mutton chops.

Probably that.

Six things I could never do without
Loved ones
Satisfying high fives
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The amazing and crushing past time of falling in love on the subway. I want to write a play or short story based on it.

The wishes I would use if I ever found a Genie.

How to put myself in the perfect state of "whelmed"

New voices I can imitate

What does it mean to be hip? Is Huey Lewis right? Is it hip to be a square?

What I would do if this world had cartoon physics?

What's the protocol on seeing someone you know on here? Do you shamefully hide the fact that you both are on this dating app? Do you say something? Crack a joke? It's been happening recently.
On a typical Friday night I am
Slaying dragons.

Or rocking out.

Or at karaoke.

Or performing improv.

Or watching wrestling...

my fridays vary.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I moved in with my best friend and his gf, I thought it would be awesome. They were the most stable couple I knew. Two months in the relationship imploded. This experience terrified me.
