You may recognize Andrew Schulz as a headlining standup, but you likely know him best from one of his many TV gigs, such as the hockey-themed sitcom Benders or MTV’s Guy Code. He’ll next appear as a cast member of the Seeso series There’s… Johnny, which takes place behind the scenes of The Tonight Show in the early ’70s. “The TV thing kind of just happened,” he explains. “Getting on TV was never a main objective, but that’s changed now. If I get on TV, I can do more standup.” Fans around the country still recall his work on Guy Code. “It’s great to be on a show like that and then get up onstage and ‘boom,’ I’m this guy.” While many lament MTV for its promotion of the reality TV genre, Schulz is not among them. “Everybody blames MTV for not playing music,” he says, “but you’ve got to blame people for that. MTV played music for the same reason McDonald’s sells hamburgers. If customers don’t support it, then they’re not going to continue to sell it.” What really killed music videos, he notes, was the internet. “If I want to see a video I just search for it on YouTube. I’m not going to sit around all day and wait for them to play the new 50 Cent video.” 18+.
