Named "one of the funniest comedians working today" by Time Out New York, Ted Alexandro's shrewd brand of observational and political comedy has brought him critical acclaim all over the world. Whether he's supporting Jim Gaffigan on tour or performing at New York's legendary Comedy Cellar, audiences can expect Ted to be "crafty, thoughtful, and extremely funny," according to the New York Times.
His special 'Senior Class of Earth' is the first comedy special to be released by Bill Burr's All Things Comedy network. Ted has made multiple appearances on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The View, The Late Show with David Letterman, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. In addition to his two half-hour specials on Comedy Central, Ted has also released two independently produced specials: I Did It and As Much As You Want. Ted has been featured on Inside Amy Schumer, The Gaffigan Show, Dr. Katz, and Oz, among others. Ted co-created the award-winning comedy webseries 'Teachers Lounge' with Hollis James. The series stars Ted as a music teacher and Hollis as a janitor in a NYC elementary school. Each episode stars a different comedian (Judy Gold, Jim Gaffigan, Dave Attell, Michael Che) as a faculty member. Throughout his career, Ted has had the pleasure of performing at iconic venues like Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden and the Sydney Opera House. He has performed internationally in France, Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Canada, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Jakarta, The U.K., Holland, Israel, South Africa and Qatar.
He is one of the co-founders of the New York Comedians Coalition, which successfully organized over three hundred comedians for the first pay raise in decades. In addition to performing and touring, Ted has been active in social justice movements like Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, The Climate March and Fight for $15.
