Alex French

Alex is a writer and performer living in New York City. He has studied sketch and improv under such UCB greats as Michael Delaney, Neil Casey, Charlie Sanders, Dominic Dierkes, Shannon O'Neill, Will Hines, Kevin Hines, Ben Rodgers, and Dyna Moe, among others.

Alex grew up in Cincinnati watching the stinky Bengals and then went to school at Notre Dame, watching the slightly less stinky Fighting Irish teams and majoring in Film and Television (which was not stinky at all). He moved to New York after graduation and taught 4th grade for two years through Teach For America.

Formerly a member of Harold and Lloyd teams Big Margaret, Bloody Mary, and Spooky Ghost, he can currently be seen improvising at UCB Chelsea most Tuesdays with Harold team Higgins, as well as performing sketch and improv around the city with groups Fun Fun Fun and Three Dogs.
