He started his path in the performing arts at the age of 15 when he first got accepted into the Escola Profissional de Teatro de Cascais (Professional Drama School) in the greater Lisbon area. Having finished his stint at the school, he decided to try stand up which led to some success in the local comedy scene - which took André to some TV work and a secondary role in the feature film Sete Pecados Rurais.
Deciding that he wanted some new challenges he moved to London in 2016 - via the USA where he had a chance to perform in several locations.
Currently residing in London, André regularly performs at some of the best clubs like THE TOP SECRET COMEDY CLUB, THE STAND, THE COMEDY CAFE, GLEE, BACKYARD COMEDY CLUB, and ANGEL COMEDY CLUB, among many others.
André has supported Rui Sinel de Cordes on his sold out tour around Portugal and in London has performed alongside many of best comedians in the UK (Jack Whitehall, Russell Howard, Ed Byrne, Josh Widdicombe, etc). He has also opened for US comic Tom Rhodes.
