It is without a doubt, stand-up comedian Alex English is ready to become the next big name in entertainment.

Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, English ushers in a impressively individual outlook on life that is the result of being raised in what he refers to as: “semi-southern culture.“ His material has been lauded as ”hilariously smart,“ as he offers his perspective on subjects such as financial strains, race relations & sexuality.

Onstage, English maintains an unparalleled charisma that audiences instantly fall in love with.

And yes, you guessed it! Alex is a hit on the internet! Alex has been featured in such media outlets The Guardian, Yahoo! News & he was even named one of “15 Twitter Personalities Who Should Be on TV” by Complex Magazine in 2013 (under the former name ‘Alex Newell’).

In 2016, English appeared in both the Thunderfest Comedy Festival in Boston, MA & the Cinderblock Comedy Festival in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
