Just For Us
Bostonian comedian. Jew. Sweetheart.
Alex Edelman's first show, Millennial - about very traumatic stock photos and young people - won an Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997.
The follow-up, Everything Handed to You - about identity and the availability of plug sockets in airports - was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second-best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival.
It was also filmed in its entirety for a special called Live at the BBC, which is currently available on Netflix.
New York-based upstart and winner of 2014's Foster's Comedy Award for Best Newcomer 'Alex Edelman is a comedian from Boston, Massachusetts. He has appeared on a few TV channels, in festivals both enormous and tiny, and at venues ranging from backwater blues bars in the middle of the United States to London's most prestigious comedy theatres' (www.pleasance.co.uk). '... Natural comic timing' (Boston Globe).
