Alex Edelman

Edinburgh Fringe - Best Newcomer 2014

Straight out of New York. Via Boston. And LA. And Jerusalem... Alex Edelman draws upon astute social observations alongside his student experiences at NYU in the creation of his beguiling comic tales. Fresh, original, and endearing, with each performance, Edelman continues to prove himself to be one of New York's most promising upcoming comedians.

Edelman’s comedy career has taken him all over the world. He's just completed his first Edinburgh fringe show 'Millennial' which earned him a Best Newcomer award.

Edelman hails from Boston, where he began comedy at the age of 15, and found frequent stage time at the area’s biggest club, the Comedy Connection, before moving to New York. In NY, he picked up where he left off, becoming a regular at many of the city's clubs while simultaneously attending NYU, a school he just graduated from with an honors degree in English.
