Andrew Tombes (29 June 1885—17 March 1976) was an American comedian and character actor.

The son of a grocer, originally from Ashtabula, Ohio, Tombes had a significant career as a vaudeville comic. By December 1914 he'd appeared in the headlining act for the opening of the Kansas City Orpheum Theatre.

He successfully ascended to Broadway comedies beginning in 1917, in the revue Miss 1917, and appeared there consistently through the 1920s, for instance in Poor Little Ritz Girl in 1920, Tip-Toes in 1925, and the Ziegfeld Follies of 1922 and 1927.

Tombes' first film appearances were in 1933, already approaching 50 years old. He made a total of about 150 films for various studios.
