Jeremy Wieand Returns

Jeremy’s always been a little guy who brings big laughs. After playing Andy King for 100 episodes on the Family Channel Original Sitcom, Big Brother Jake, along with being cast on most major television shows in the 1990’s including Boy Meets World, Sister Sister and Clueless, he decided the laughs were not going to stop with the quirkiness of getting older.

Because of his lack of height… and hair, he’s always had a knack for witty comebacks and humorous anecdotes. If it’s a confusing, uncomfortable or embarrassing situation, chances are Jeremy’s been through it too and can help you laugh about it along the way.
