Called “the nicest cynic you’ll ever meet”, Alex Giampapa began performing stand-up in Boston at the age of 19 and soon became a popular act all across New England. Now based in New York City, he’s shared the stage with legendary comedians such as Bill Burr, Hannibal Buress, and Gary Gulman as well as opening for Adam Devine and Erik Griffin of Workaholics fame. A 2018 selection for both the Big Pine Comedy Festival in Flagstaff, AZ and The Boston Comedy Festival, he’s also competed in The World Series of Comedy, was a 3x finalist in The Beantown Comedy Riots, and has been featured in The Salem Comedy Festival (Salem, MA), The Motor City Comedy Festival (Detroit, MI) and The Mutiny Radio Comedy Festival (San Francisco, CA).
Giampapa’s style comedy makes him a popular choice as both a host and a closer, with carefully crafted, silly-but-clever takes on personal matters, social issues, and even today’s complicated political climate. Described as “a distinct, young voice that’s both unique and relatable”, Alex’s edgy yet upbeat demeanor has made him a favorite among young audiences, with rave reviews from older crowds as well.
Alex has had digital success too: he’s been featured on Comedy Central Asia, Funny or Die, and has been the #1 post on Reddit twice. He’s currently the host of The Actual News on YouTube. Alex wrote for and performed in “Bane of the Party,” a sketch for Brova Comedy. He also plays the antagonist in Vinnie Pagano’s short film, Handled.
