His friends and teacher realized that he had different talents, and one of them was, to make people laugh. At first, this seemed comical to Andy, but later he managed to enter the world of television through comedy. 

He began to explore the world of art, acting, music, etc. No one would believe that his monologue about football would be one of the best monologues of all time. In 1953, this monologue quickly became known.
