Andres Fernandez has been a nationally touring stand-up comic for almost thirty years, with numerous TV and film appearances throughout his career. One of his appearances he’s most proud of was in Patriot Act, a documentary filmed in Iraq while entertaining our troops with Drew Cary.
Andres has also been a restauranteur and night club owner for the past ten years, opening The 805 Bar and Grilled Cheese and The Copa Cubana – while still making audiences laugh at his own club, The Ventura Harbor Comedy Club.

Charity: The Children's Services Auxiliary
The Children’s Services Auxiliary (CSA), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1983, is a volunteer run organization whose mission is to meet the needs of Ventura County’s court-dependent children. These children have been displaced from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment. The Auxiliary also serves foster youth who have recently transitioned to independence. The CSA Board of Directors work closely with Foster VC Kids, a program of Ventura County Children and Family Services to identify the needs of the court-dependent children and transitioning youth.
Foster VC Kids, a program of Ventura County Children and Family Services supports CSA in all their work (and dancing!). Foster VC Kids supports resource (foster) families, helping to find foster children and youth loving homes, as well as helping families access support services to help them. Foster VC Kids provides training for all potential parents who open their hearts to help our Ventura County foster children and youth in need. www.fostervckids.org.
