“Inspiringly intelligent, beguilingly funny.” — The Times

Boston-born, New York-based comedian Alex Edelman broke onto the scene in 2014 with his first show, Millennial, winning the Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer. In the years since, Edelman’s continued to deliver the hilarity, racking up the praise while mining the particularities of his generation, his Orthodox Jewish upbringing, and ordinary daily life occurrences—such as meeting the Duke of Cambridge or crashing a party for white supremacists. Edelman brings his perfect mesh of standup and storytelling to MASS MoCA for a summer sendoff full of laughs.
