Iíll never understand why it is that the genius of Andy Richter is only ever allowed to express itself when paired on-air with Conan OíBrien. Heís a hilarious guy, even when left alone to his own devices. Presented here is Richterís final attempt at a solo vehicle from 2007, prior to his 2009 on-air return to Conanís show.

And what youíll see is one of the funniest, shortest comedies of the decade. Andy portrays Andy Barker, a CPA turned private detective due to mistaken identity. Surrounding Andy are some absolutely crazy secondary characters at the strip mall where his office is located, and the show delivers a great amount of laughs.

The main cast:
Andy Richter as Andy Barker
Clea Lewis as Jenny Barker
Tony Hale as Simon
Marshall Manesh as Wally
Harve Presnell as Lew Staziak
Only the top name is likely to set off any bells in the head of the main audience -- which really is probably for the best. Avoids typecasting.

Please post any questions or comments about this set.

Default As brilliant and talented as Andy is...

...he does not have what it takes to be a "sitcom star" in prime-time. Not when he keeps appearing in "offbeat" series that only a few million viewers bothered to tune in every week. He tried adapting himself to a "traditional" sitcom for Fox a few years ago, but even that didn't work out. Don't get me wrong, there were some things about "ANDY BARKER" I liked, but Andy himself will never become a mass audience success outside of "LATE NIGHT" and "THE TONIGHT SHOW"...and that's a shame.

...as for Harve Presnell, he passed away last June at the age of 65. He used to appear a lot on Broadway and in various films {best known for his role in the stage and screen versions of "The Unsinkable Molly Brown"**. "ANDY BARKER" was his final series; he was also seen in dramatic supporting roles on "THE PRETENDER" and "LOIS & CLARK".
