Stand up
His material often covers the comedy industry itself, criticizing other comedians for being too predictable. One of his more
notable criticisms was that of Dane Cook where he compared the comedian's rise to that of Adolf Hitler's. He then went on to
say that Cook was worse than Hitler, because at least Hitler had a point of view. Andy often criticizes his own comedy even in
the middle of his act. If a joke doesn't do well he'll immediately start discussing why it didn't work with the crowd.
Kindler has a standup DVD entitled I Wish I was Bitter, which is available for sale exclusively on his website.

Acting
He played the character "Andy" a fellow sportswriter and friend of sportswriter "Ray Barone" (Ray Romano) on the TV show
Everybody Loves Raymond, is a regular guest on Late Show with David Letterman, contributor to The Daily Show and has
performed on HBO. He is also known for his annual "State of the Industry" address at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in
Montreal. In 2010, Kindler was a judge on the stand-up reality show Last Comic Standing. In 2010 he appeared on several
episodes of Wizards of Waverly Place as Chancellor Tootietootie.
As a voice actor, Kindler has made numerous appearances on Dr. Katz and Home Movies from producer Loren Bouchard. He
regularly voices the character of Mort, a mortician and the Belchers' neighbor, on Bouchard's show Bob's Burgers.
Kindler is often thought to have portrayed the character of "Jamison" in the World Wrestling Federation, but the character was
portrayed by a different actor by the name of John DiGiacomo.[2][3]
