Globally recognized for his Stella Artois Superbowl commercial starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Jeff Bridges, ANDREW PIFKO, the award-winning actor and comedian is no stranger to Hollywood. With his comprehensive body of work in film, theater and voice, this classically trained actor has his sights set on becoming a household name. Pifko has been disrupting audiences in Film Festivals worldwide playing “Simon Craw” in the acclaimed drama, DADDY ISSUES which is slated to premiere on FRIDAY, APRIL 19th in cities nationwide and available on all streaming services.
The film centers around Maya (Madison Lawlor), a queer pixie artist who meets and falls madly in love with her insta-crush, Jasmine. It’s all gumdrops and fairytales until Maya discovers Jasmine’s passionate relationship with a secret sugar daddy Simon Craw (Andrew Pifko). For his role, Andrew was nominated for “Best Lead Actor” at the Nice, France International Film Festival and won in the same category at BOTH the NoVa Film Festival in Virginia and The Salento Italy Film Festival.
On the small screen, Pifko will have a recurring role in as a swashbuckling Robin Hood-esque bandit in BYUtv’s ‘Dwight In Shining Armor’ airing Monday nights and will be heard as a series regular, voicing multiple characters, on Netflix’s ‘Carmen Sandiego’ alongsideJane the Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez. He also recently wrapped ‘Greek Gods’, with comedy icon Mel Brooks, taking an acerbically comic look at the immigration debate.
When he’s not on set, Pifko can be seen singing and performing as the lead in Second City Hollywood’s production of ‘More Guns: The NRA Musical’ (now extended until August 2019) every Saturday evening at 8:30pm at Second City Hollywood. Pifko also often performs with the music and rap improv group ‘Kaboombox’ and ‘Robot Teammate and the Accidental Party.’
This Canadian native holds an Honors degree in Zoology and Microbiology from the University of Toronto and is a graduate LAMDA, U.K. post-grad classical program. As an extension of his pre-med studies, Andrew gained certifications in Research, Night and Rescue Scuba Diver on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. He also spent a year in both Japan and Israel teaching English before eventually becoming an actor and graduating from the Upright Citizen Brigade’s Improv and Musical Improv programs. This modern-day renaissance man also enjoys riding his motorcycle and getting his hands dirty, having just completed a 2-year renovation of a classic 1929 Hollywood Hills home to bring it back to its former stature. To no surprise, his many voice over projects and travels have led him to master many languages including German, Japanese, French and Hebrew.
We would love to set up an interview with this extremely talented comedian, actor and singer on behalf of his several upcoming projects! We look forward to hearing from you!
