Fox Sports comedian, Andrew Barnett, has been confirmed as the entertainment for the 39th National Print Awards which will take place next Thursday 30 June during the week of PacPrint in Melbourne.

Known as ‘Barney’ by his viewers, Barnett is the resident funny man on Sunday Night with Matty Johns and The Back Page. He also co-hosted several Fox network hit shows with James ‘The Professor’ Rochford, including The Night Watchman on Fox Cricket, Narrow World of Sports on Fox League and Fox Footy, and wrote and performed on The Professor’s Farewell Tour and The Professor’s Second Year Syndrome.

“Andrew is described as warm, personable and hilarious, and widely acclaimed for his relaxed style which belies a quick mind and razor-sharp wit,” says Peter Clark, President of host organisation the PVCA.

“He will be a terrific addition to the program for the industry’s night of nights,” he said.
