About Alexa Albanese (she/her)

Writing, Performing, Producing & Showrunning


Alexa's work has been featured in Boston and New York festivals, most notably Best of Boston Sketch and The People’s Improv Theater’s Solocom. She produces, head writes, and stars in her own sketch comedy-variety shows at The Rockwell in Davis Square, Somerville, among other venues. Many of these shows have benefitted the greater Boston community, most recently through a holiday food drive benefitting The Elizabeth Peabody House Food Pantry - and work with Dignity Boston, a "progressive and inclusive Catholic community for people of all sexual orientations, genders and gender identities, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex persons, our family, friends and supporters.” 

In the world of stand-up, Alexa has opened for Liz Glazer and held a guest spot during Gary Gulman's 2022 visit to The Comedy Studio's Union Square, Somerville residency prior to the launch of his tour, Born on 3rd Base.

Alexa's creative nonfiction works have been featured in national and international literary anthologies. 

Education and Teaching

Alexa received her Bachelor of Arts from Emmanuel College in Theater Arts and English: Writing, Editing, & Publishing. She works as an arts administrator at Office for the Arts at Harvard and is pursuing the Journalism Master of Liberal Arts (ALM) in Extension Studies at Harvard University. This program has offered myriad opportunities to take classes like Humor Writing, Advanced TV Sketch Comedy with Hugh Fink, and Feature Writing that have helped her work bridge the gap between journalism and topical comedy writing.


She also completed the Training Center at Improv Ayslum in Boston, learned Improv to Sketch at ImprovBoston from Shantira Jackson, and taken courses at The Second City (online) with Holly Wortell among others.


Alexa has taught her "Crafting the Late-Night Packet" workshop at Harvard College and Boston University Metropolitan College.
