DAVID JOHN ASSOCIATES
Andy Cameron is undoubtedly the most popular international comedy star in Scotland. He is also one of Scotland's most popular, humorous, after dinner speakers and he still appears regularly at corporate gala dinners, prestigious awards ceremonies, in theatres and hotels throughout the country.
He continues to entertain audiences in every facet of the entertainment industry, including television and radio. For a number of years Andy played the part of Chick the cheeky taxi driver in STV's long running soap 'High Road'.
On leaving school Andy had 24 jobs before he entered show-business at 32 years of age. The jobs were as diverse as bridge-building and bus driving, but the job he enjoyed most was selling. The nicest accolade he received as a salesman was when an area manager told him he could sell the Pope a double bed.
1979 saw the BBC in Scotland modernising its image and moving from the old Home Service on radio to a brand new Radio Scotland. Andy was given a 13-week contract to present a programme of music and gags. After 2 weeks it was suggested that he ask children to phone in with their jokes. This was such a great success that the 13 weeks stretched to 15 years and resulted in him being voted Radio Personality of the year in 1984.
Throughout Andy's career he has developed as excellent After Dinner speaker, host and auctioneer and this has talent him all over the world - Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, Dubai, even England!
Andy likes to tailor his speeches to suit the occasion and this has been welcomed by organisers of corprate events, Sporting Dinners, Burns Suppers and Tribute Dinners. Andy is one of Scotlands most in demand guest speakers and also one of our best Burns exponents. He can cover all elements of a Burns Supper.
