“A rare mixture of wit and charm” The Guardian
Alex’s ability to interact with any audience, free flowing style and natural charm means he is currently one of the most sought after acts in the country.
A lifelong comedy fan, Alex stormed onto the scene and quickly became one of the most popular choices on the circuit during the late 90’s. A full time comic since 1998, his skills as a writer have also been in constant demand for Britain’s most cutting edge prime time TV and Radio comedy shows. If you’ve found yourself falling off your chair in a fit of giggles watching TV’s latest successful comedy offering, the chances are, Alex is responsible.
“A great comic and a skilled writer” Sarah Millican
A lightening quick ad libber with a charming and natural ease, Alex is an established MC. His unique brand of “flattery and abuse” proves ever-popular with audiences, and although often dancing deliciously close to the boundaries of what is considered PC to say in public, the lack of malice and warmth to his approach means that everyone feels they’re in on the joke. A trusted and revered headliner, Alex’s ‘loved up’ tales as a ‘Madchester’ Veteran, have audiences fascinated and immersed in his world, wishing they could have been there with him.
