Andrew Ouellette has won his fair share of comedy competitions including a 2011 Tacoma Comedy Club Competition, winning a cash prize and position as regular paid host. The Lucky Derby comp was another one, beating out over 30 other comedians for the top spot. However, one win stands out among the rest. Early 2014 – Ouellette won “Sacramento’s Last Comic Standing.” (No relation to the NBC hit show) A professional competition put on by the Center for Spiritual Awareness; a nondenominational church in West Sacramento. Over two separate dates he…

A girl named “Eve” broke Andrew’s heart on a Thursday night. He was sulking in a late night diner with his friend Bryant Tarpley when he got the idea to make “magic” happen. Sort of like the way mad scientists do. “What if I hire a sky writer or send her 1,000 roses?” Bryant shook his head no. “What if I make her a music video?” Bryant’s response was brief, “No. Do not do that. That only works in shitty romantic comedies.” Andrew’s eyes lit up and he began scribbling…

August 2014 – Andrew Ouellette went to the land down under. “I fell in love with standup comedy in Australia” he says. First show was a headlining performance for 450 people and the following weeks of shows were similar. Not only was this his first overseas tour but it completely changed his thoughts on how comedy should and would be approached in his future endeavors. When not performing shows at venues like: Subiaco Performing Arts Center, Little Creatures, Charles Hotel, Pour House and many more, Andrew explored the animal orphanages…

80 City Tour The last tour before Ouellette took a year off the road to write novels and make films was an 80 city, 3 month affair. The idea was to raise money for childhood cancer research, and although that didn’t go how he had hoped, it was the effort that mattered. The tour was filled with identity theft, engine troubles, and fighting with the man who stole his charity money. The car was broken into and his bags stolen while he was on stage in Chicago. A storm verging…

50 states/50 shows/50 days In 2012 Andrew produced and performed in a tour called the ‘Biggest Tour Ever EVER”. The concept was performing 50 shows in all fifty states in only fifty days. Yes, that include Hawaii and Alaska. He had been touring the country regularly but this was by far the most challenging thing Ouellette was up to at this point. Morgan Preston and Kristine Levine (His tour mates) provided more experience forming a comedy trio. Challenges: fighting, going blind from reoccurring corneal abrasion, cancellations and fill in dates,…

50 shows/50 states/48 days In 2012 Ouellette completed a tour he produced and stared in called “the Biggest tour Ever EVER” – it was a series of 50 shows in 50 states in only 50 days. Less than a year later he was back at it, attempting the same achievement of performing in all 50 states (Yes, including Hawaii and Alaska) BUT in only 48 days this time. Mid 2013 – Morgan Preston and Andrew Ouellette combined their efforts again, with the addition of comedian Billy Anderson, navigator Keith Walker…

If you like vlogs then check out Andrew Online. The comedian does a combination of How To videos, off color tutorials, the occasionally ill-informed political rant and strange “sketch” bordering on dull-witted. There are also plenty of times Andrew just talks about life, whatever may pop into his mind. Behind the scenes of comedy shows and plenty of entertaining things he doesn’t charge you for. His stage show costs money but these videos are free. Once you watch one you’ll find yourself scratching like a crack fiend for more. You…

The album has been in the works for years and with any luck it’ll be recorded sooner rather than later. This will be the first full length comedy album released by Andrew Ouellette for sale. Up until now it’s always been shelved for other projects or opportunities, even though it’s one of the most important projects here at American Failure. Keep your eyes out for it in the upcoming year.

First T-shirt Design

“How Was Your Weekend” This was the first t-shirt that I ever sold. The concept was based on a joke I do about psychedelic mushrooms. Highly offensive, the shirt sold surprisingly well. If you look closely at the Jager bottle you can see my logo as well as some very naught inscriptions on the side. If you’re a fan of my stand up comedy then there’s plenty of little Easter Eggs. There are no current plans to ever bring the design back online or at live shows. It is officially…
