Comedian Spotlight: Andrew Bowser
Updated: May 29, 2020
You probably don't know this comedian, but you have probably seen one or two of his videos without realizing that it was a prank. He is mostly known for his character, Onyx the Fortuitous, who is a nerdy modern day satanist. I first found out about him through Tik Tok and there are currently hundreds, if not thousands, of videos on there featuring his character Onyx. Andrew has been actively involved in entertainment for almost twenty years now. After leaving the School of Visual Arts, he began his career making music videos and then transitioned into movies and television. About seven years ago, Bowser started his YouTube channel where his Onyx character made his first appearances. His comedy style feels similar to that of Sacha Baron Cohen, in the sense that some of what he does is messing with people whereas other parts are scripted. After watching so many of his videos, I can't help but describe him as the nerdy incel satanist Borat. Some of his most popular videos are in the format of a news interview, and I don't think they are real but if you told me they were, I would be inclined to believe you. I can't do this man justice just by talking about him so you'll just need to see how funny this shit is for yourself.
