2016 San Francisco Comedy Competition
I was throwing a party for a friend's birthday and needed a great local comedian to make us laugh. I found Alex on GigSalad.
I asked Alex if he could refrain from using the offensive cuss words I specified and he agreed. I asked if he would perform for an hour or so. He was available and I booked him.
I got what I ordered. He was fantastic! He was hilarious, personable, and made fun of most of us in the group. We couldn't stop laughing. I mean belly roll on the floor laughing. He helped us find humor in parenting, families, friendship, politics, policies, laws, locals, and more. Even the bar staff wasn't off limits. And they laughed too.
It was a party not to be forgotten because of Alex the Comedian. I recommend him for any adult party. You will be impressed and so will your guests.

"I received Alex's name as a recommendation from another comedian when looking for one to perform for a 40th Birthday Party that I helped in planning. Alex definitely came through as promised! He had to adjust to a kid friendly crowd at the last minute and still had everyone in the room laughing until there were tears in their eyes. He performed a mix of his own comedy along with some jokes about getting older which was perfect! The attendees at the party raved about how much fun they had and I even received a couple messages later that evening telling me again how much fun the party was and asked how I found Alex. Alex made this party planner look very good and the birthday boy loved it! I would recommend Alex for any sort of event in which you want people laughing. I know we will be using Alex again at some point in the future!!!" - Marci Kallinger
