Web Video / Andre the Black Nerd
"Hi, I'm Andre, and I'm a black nerd."
Andre Meadows is a black man who loves cartoons, old-school video games, Nickelodeon, and feet, and gives his rants and opinions on them on his YouTube
show titled Andre the Black Nerd
. In addition to reviews and thoughts, he also has "Awkward Talks with Girls", where he talks to nerdy women about various nerd things, and inevitably asks them if he can rub their feet. He is often seen wearing nerd glasses and a shirt with some video game or cartoon-themed aspect, and sometimes a pixelated tie.
Before creating Andre the Black Nerd
, he had a presence on the web where he had a comic strip named "Andre's Wildest Dreams", about himself and some fictional characters as middle school students, and also had fictional interviews with celebrities.

This show contains examples of:
- Adorkable: C'mon. You know you wanna say it.
- He finds this attractive, so much so that he made a video of the top 7 most adorkable cartoon characters the #1 of which was Velma from Scooby Doo. Andre commented that Linda Cardellini playing Velma in the live action adaptations of Scooby Doo induced mindblowing amounts of adorkable to an already adorkable character.
- Author Appeal: Andre likes feet. He makes no effort to hide it; hell, he flaunts it.
- Black and Nerdy: Andre himself, a gamer and animation fan.
- The Cameo:
- Andre himself made an appearance in Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures.
- He guest-starred in a Vsauce video that marked the 25th anniversary of Mario's creation.
- He also made a guest appearance for the Nostalgia Chick when she reviewed The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
- Not to mention his participation in the Nostalgia Critic review of The Smurfs.
- Catch Phrase:
- His intro: "Hi I'm Andre and I'm a black nerd."
- His outro: "Love ya like a play cousin! I'm outie 5000! Chain-Chomp-Yomp".
- #HashtagForLaughs: One of Black Nerd Comedy's most recurrent Running Gag is #SmoothDonatello, which Andre sings each time Donatello from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2012) makes something to impress his crush April O'Neil. Eventually, he started to sing variations of the hashtag each time a character hits on his/her love interest (with the appropriate font color).
- Samus Is a Girl: In his showcase of his amiibo collection, he mentions an employee at Toys 'R Us thought Samus was a guy. He then lampshades this.
- Self-Deprecation: He'll utilize this sort of comedy occasionally.
- Stupid Sexy Flanders / Even the Guys Want Him: Rather blatantly shows this toward Captain America in his review of Captain America: The Winter Soldier
I love you like a play cousin! I'm Outie 5000!
