President, Just For Laughs
An acclaimed thought-provoking, risk-taking public showman, Andy Nulman likes to break things…like rules, traditions, on through to the other side and sometimes, his neck. He proclaims that true innovation cannot happen without being open to failure and tries to embody this fearless approach in just about everything he does. During his first spell with Just For Laughs, he transformed the event from a two-day show to a month-long cultural happening, attracting over two million visitors per year in the process. After a hyper-successful 11-year foray into the tech world as a pioneer in the mobile media space, he’s back at Just For Laughs to cattle-prod the traditional business of comedy and perhaps break yet one more thing while doing so–the bank.
