Andy Richter Controls the Universe is a sitcom created by Victor Fresco. It was Andy Richter's first starring role after leaving NBC's Late Night with Conan O'Brien in 2000.
Andy is a short story writer, who makes his living by working at a huge faceless company in present day Chicago, writing Technical Manuals. In his active, fertile, writer's imagination, we see (and hear as he narrates) the stories of his daily life, as they should be, could be, and even actually how they are. Andy shares his office with the company's newest employee, and his newest friend, the frail, jumpy, odd, loveable Byron. Also inhabiting Andy's world is his best friend Keith, who is "so good looking" that Andy must fight his own "prejudice against the 'attractive'" who seem to get everything they want, unlike ordinary humans.
