On the January 29th episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Emmy Award-winning television and radio host, producer and author, Andy Cohen, exclusively announced that he is partnering with Madame Tussauds New York for his first-ever wax figure.
Andy and his guest bartender Matthew Clarkson, Head of Marketing Operations at Madame Tussauds, announced that the upcoming figure will be available to visit at the Times Square museum in 2024.
“This is an incredible honor; I can’t even believe it! I cannot wait to meet my wax twin,” said Andy Cohen.
Cohen worked with a team of Studio Artists from Madame Tussauds during a long sitting where large amounts of measurements took place. With over one hundred to be in fact, the star had his exact features down to his hair color, eye color, and skin tone taken into consideration to make sure it matched his real life persona.
Over the course of the next nine months, 20 studio artists will be sculpting, painting, and individually inserting hair to achieve the Cohen look.
Inside Madame Tussauds New York, the figure will be seated in a recreated version of the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen studio, inviting true Bravoholics into an interactive experience that allows them to sit in the guest seat to be interviewed by Andy or pose as the featured bartender at the famous clubhouse bar.
“It was such a pleasure working with Andy to create his first-ever wax figure,” said Matthew Clarkson, Head of Marketing Operations for Madame Tussauds. “Many of us know and love Andy, especially when it comes to unraveling the reality drama and spilling the tea. We’re over the moon to have him be a part of Madame Tussauds New York!”
