Joke-teller Alex Grubard grew up in Massachusetts, began his career in New York City and is currently a student enrolled at Temple University in Philadelphia. With his memorable catchphrases, sharp joke technique and absurd character Alex Grubard is a popular and likeable stand-up act.
In 2014 and 2015 Grubard created and hosts popular game shows including Curses!, Electile Dysfunction, and Weeding Out The Stoned for Good Good Comedy. At the start of 2014 Grubard was named runner-up for both Best Stand-Up Comedian and Best Stand-Up Bit at the 2014 Wit Out Awards in Philadelphia.
