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, “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 "Media" 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 "Our Future is Female Short Films" at New Orleans' 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. On June 1, 2022, she premiered "Alexa...Kick Off Pride!" - a late-night style show featuring original games. In December 2022, she produced, led a writers room for, and starred in an SNL style spectacle: "Alexa...WTF? A Comedy Revue of 2022."
In the world of stand-up, notable highlights include "Kenan Presents" at Laugh Boston and opening for Gary Gulman during his The Comedy Studio visit - soon after his first tour stop for "Born on 3rd Base."
She is proud to be a Consulting Producer for FODball Productions, "dedicated to showcasing and uplifting comedians who are typically the 'first, only, or different' on comedy lineups."
