    Andrew "Andy" Larkin 
The main character of the show, and self-proclaimed world's greatest prankster.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Jen sure thinks so.
  • Anti-Hero: Likes to stir the pot, but isn't a villain.
  • Big Eater: Downplayed, but he still eats quite a bit.
  • Brainy Brunette: May not be a good student but his pranks prove he is quite intelligent, and he does have dark hair.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: When he narrates, he addresses the audience.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Check, Please!"
  • Child Hater: He doesn't hate children, but at first he didn't like the preschoolers he had to share with in "The Show Must Go On", as he thought it was undignified for him to socialize with children who had "just recently learned to go to the bathroom in a toilet instead of in their pants." However, when he stood up to a kid who was bullying them, they all became friends.
  • Comedic Underwear Exposure: Quite often he loses or tears his pants.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Particularly when Jen is around. Also sometimes says things like "kill me now" if he's bored, however, it's a downplayed example as he's not that snarky.

  • My Hovercraft Is Full of Eels: In "What's With Jean-Thomas?", he's trying to say "If you practice, you could win the Stanley Cup" in French. What he says is French, but it actually translates to "Your ears are so big that you look like the Stanley Cup".
  • Narrator: Sometimes he narrates to the audience.
  • Playing Sick: In "Gooey Chewies", Andy pretends to have caught Lori's "cold". There was also his You Don't Want to Catch This moment in "Emergency Spew Relish".
