Andi Wagner (aka Andrea) was a Co-Host for the pop culture trivia game show “Trashed” on MTV as well as a Host of “FiT TV” and “Friday Night” on NBC.
But that was a long, long, long time ago…
Now, she’s a crazed, multitasking mother of an energetic 9-year-old boy, whose rediscovering and redefining her purpose in life.
Andi made the ultimate decision to break free from the monotony of motherhood by performing stand-up at local comedy clubs. She enjoys finding the humor in parenting and marriage, one joke at a time.
Andi Wagner (aka Andrea) says it was the “monotony of motherhood” and a wicked midlife crisis that forced her to attempt stand-up comedy. When she’s not making healthy snacks or driving her Chrysler minivan to baseball practice, she’s moonlighting at seedy open mics across Los Angeles.
She’s a firecracker mom, with no filter. Removing the shackles of domesticity, she brings the humor in motherhood and marriage to the stage. It’s keeping her away from the PTA and closer to the exciting world of angry, bitter comics and hecklers.
Andi has performed at The Comedy Store, Flappers, Westside comedy Theater, HA HA’s, The Warehouse and in the kitchen for her husband…wearing only stilettos.
Before becoming a mother and the onset of her midlife crisis, Andi was the co-host on MTV’s pop culture trivia game show, “Trashed,” a host on NBC’s “Friday Night,” and host/writer on FiT TV’s, “Healthy Living.”
Andi’s career in television started as a junior in college when she was selected as a contestant in Miami Florida, at the Broward County Fair, and flown to LA to appear on “The All New Dating Game.” Afterwards, Andi landed a gig on the show interning as a Contestant Coordinator and continuing to work for Barris Productions on “The All New Newlywed Game,” and “The Gong Show.”
She continued her career in casting for shows like “The Love Connection” (where she met her husband of 19 years!) “Kids Say the Darndest Things,” “The Big Date,” and “The Quiz Kids Challenge.”
Andi switched gears as a Segment Producer for MTV’s “The Cut,” USA’s “Lover or Loser,” and the daily talk show, “Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus.”
Most recently, Andi was a contestant on TNT’s reality competition series, “72 Hours” where she was dropped in the beautiful but frigid alps of New Zealand with two strangers. Three teams of three complete strangers compete to find $100,000 in 72 hours with only the clothes on their backs, a GPS and a bottle of water. Andi’s team survived the grueling challenge and won.
