Alex Edelman Show

After opening for Eddie Izzard and Ricky Gervais, the award-winning Bostonian comedian comes to JW3

Arts & Culture

Edelman’s first show, ‘Millennial’, won the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer; His follow-up, ‘Everything Handed to You’, was even more acclaimed: selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second-best reviews of any comedy show at the Festival ; His third show, ‘Just for Us’, has cemented his reputation as a writer-performer of impressive ambition and technical skill. He’s opened for comedians like Eddie Izzard, Ricky Gervais and Patton Oswalt, and a handful of musicians including Ryan Adams and Beck. And he’s bringing his best jokes to JW3’s Comedy Festival stage for the first time.

Edelman grew up in an Orthodox Jewish family in Boston, spending a year in a Yeshiva in Jerusalem before returning to the US to study at New York University. Edelman has been featured at JFL as a New Face (2015), written on the aforementioned ‘The Great Indoors’ (2016), appeared on ‘Conan’ (2018), created ‘Peer Group’ – a show about the millennial generation – on Radio 4, and his hour-long special, ‘Live at the BBC’is available on Netflix.
