New York based comedian Alex Koll has appeared on TBS’s “CONAN,” HBO Canada’s “Funny As Hell,” Comedy Central's "Live At Gotham,” and performed at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, once garnering a "Best of New Faces" nod. He has written for TruTV’s Impractical Jokers and The Bold Italic. His debut album titled “Wizard Hello” on Rooftop Comedy's label is currently available on iTunes.
“As you might expect, given his bizarre online trail, his standup is influenced by the nonsequitur-laden absurdism of Mitch Hedberg and Zach Galifianakis. But what makes
Koll's act special is how he bridges the gulf between askew alt-comedy and grounded,
observational humor. It's a rare quality in the alternative-comedy community, where
many are intent on out-quirking one another. Whether going on obscure tangents or
offering up more straightforward observations, Koll's comic voice is his own.”
