Alex Powers is an American stand-up comedian, actress, and writer from Baltimore, MD. As a comic, she has been described as a "pervy, middle-aged man trapped in the body of a cute lesbian." Her stand-up has been characterized as edgy, unpredictable, and remarkably smart.
Alex resides in Los Angeles, CA and has starred in several short films and web series while performing stand-up all over the United States. She was a finalist for the 2016 Martin Grant (lost to a white guy) and, in 2017, she appeared on season 3 of Laughs (FOX, Hulu) in a total of two episodes. Her stand-up is also featured on Amazon.
She hilariously uses irony in addressing issues of racism, sexism, and other social turmoils. Much of her material focuses on life as a lesbian and the hysterical inner workings of her romantic relationships. Her writing style is a combination of quick punchlines and dry deliveries. She has generated a routine that is heavy on sharp one-liners, laced with well crafted storytelling.
