Who is Andrew Fyfe?

Andrew Fyfe is an Australian cartoonist and satirist.

He is perhaps best known for his role as the cartoonist on Australia's longest running variety show, Hey Hey It's Saturday, where he would instantly satirize situations that occurred live on air with lightning quick cartoons drawn with his "pen cam". He performed this role from 1985, while still a teenager, until the show's run ended in 1999. He returned for the show's 2009 reunion specials, as well as the show's return in 2010.

Andrew has drawn in front of celebrities including Sophia Loren, Tony Bennett, Samuel L. Jackson, Clint Eastwood, Leslie Nielsen, Cliff Richard and Patrick Swayze.

In 1993-94 he hosted his own children's game show Guess What? with Alison Brahe and Jaquie Rindt. On the show two panels of children had to decipher the answers to Andrew's picture puzzles.

Andrew's work was also seen on Network Nine's top rating The Footy Show between 1994 and 2004 where he produced an animated segment satirizing the news of the week. His political satiric animation has also appeared on A Current Affair.
