About Alexa Albanese (she/her)
Alexa received her Bachelor of Arts from Emmanuel College in Theater Arts and English: Writing, Editing, & Publishing. In March 2019, she premiered her own comedy-variety show, then named “Alexa...play something funny," which has been featured in ImprovBoston's Best of Boston Sketch, The People's Improv Theater's Solocom, and Comedic Pursuits DC's District Queer Comedy festivals.
"Alexa..." debuted several virtual comedy specials during the COVID-19 shutdown, all of which can be found under the "Sketch/Variety" tab of this site. These specials featured arts leaders, performers, and game show contestants nationwide. Her pandemic music videos - "The 'Rona Block Tango" and "Be in Sync" - were featured in Dig. Boston and New Orleans' inaugural Lysistrata Comedy Festival, respectively.
The comedy-variety show made a grand return to in-person and has called The Rockwell in Davis Square home since June 2022.
In the world of stand-up, Alexa can be seen all around New England. She was featured as a guest spot when Gary Gulman stopped by The Comedy Studio during its Somerville, MA residency and has opened for Liz Glazer.
