Andrew Johnston | Biography

Andrew spent the majority of 2016 playing Mr Walt in the World Premiere national tour of John Cleese’s Fawlty Towers Live (Michael Coppel Entertainment, 2016) where he was kept busy understudying the lead role of Basil.

His recent theatre credits include Jeff in The Lunar Effect (Old Fitz Theatre, 2015), Gordy in Philip Ridley’s Shivered (Mad March Hare, 2015), Bottom in Peter Evans’ production of A Midsummer Nights Dream (Bell Shakespeare, 2013) and Alan in Lee Lewis’ national touring production Moliere’s The School For Wives (Bell Shakespeare, 2012). Children across Australia may know him as the mischievous Andy from the stage adaptations of Andy Griffiths’ incredibly successful 13 and 26 Storey Treehouse books (CDP, 2014). Andrew toured schools around Australia with Bell Shakespeare’s The Players program in 2013. His self-devised comedy show, Rip Whitening’s SynchroDestiny Experience received the People’s Choice award at the 2010 Sydney Fringe Festival. On screen he is most notable for the lead role of Derek in the award winning independent feature film, Ad Nauseam (2013) written and directed by Nikos Andronicos.

Andrew regularly lends his voice to national advertising campaigns, corporate videos and sporting events. He appeared as Hannibal Lecter in the recent successful online protest to pressure Westpac out of involvement in the Adani coal mine on the Great Barrier Reef.

This is first appearance in a Sport For Jove production and he's stoked to be a part of the team.
