Imagine if you lived your life according to the values set out in the movie Terminator 2.
Now Listen To Me Very Carefully is exactly that, a semi-autobiographical piece about Andy’s filmic obsession, where the audience helps Andy recreate the film. He estimates he has watched Terminator 2 roughly 238 times in his lifetime, spending almost a month of his 28 years in front of it. As a teenager, Terminator 2 was all he had to guide him through his adolescence… so using stand-up comedy, storytelling and participation, Andy transports the audience back to that delicate age when girls were a mystery, make believe was everything – and the future was yet to be written.
