Alex Edelman
Alex Edelman
Alex Edelman has a appeared on Conan. His show Millennial won a Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, revealed Edelman to the international stand-up community as one of its brightest young talents, and subsequently enjoyed nice runs and performances in London, Australia, New York, Los Angeles, and Sweden (!).

Edelman’s 2015 follow-up show, Everything Handed to You, has garnered even more unanimous acclaim. It sold out its entire run at this year’s Fringe and earned a bushel full of great reviews – it was the second best reviewed comedy show at the entire Festival – and its first work-in-progress performance, at the Leicester Comedy Festival, garnered Edelman a nomination for Best New Show.

Both of Edelman’s hours have examined his position amongst his peer group and he has written intelligently about Millennials in The Guardian, The Atlantic, among other places.



Also, some other credits if you need them: He’s been opening for Simon Amstell a bunch this past year, which was really fun even though Simon is vegan. He’s also opened for Patton Oswalt, and toured with Eddie Izzard in Berlin and Moscow (!). He was a New Face of Comedy at Just For Laugh’s Festival in Montreal – which is like a big deal to comedy people and apparently two of your cousins – and, TV-wise, he’s done a surprising amount of Australian stuff, been on Comedy Central’s Comics To Watch and The John Bishop Show recently. He wore a suit on the latter and at the time his girlfriend said he looked handsome in his suit.

Although he has no personal life to speak of, he enjoys Italian food and David Foster Wallace.
