Alex Schubert entered the comedy scene thinking that women like guys with a sense of humor, and that his jokes and passable looks could get him laid.
He could not have been more wrong.
Schubert is an up-and-comer in the Cincinnati comedy scene, which is a subtle way of saying he hasn't accomplished shit. He began his journey at the tender age of 16 by writing topical jokes for a New York Times blog. When the blog ended, he kept doing his topical joke shindig, then he transitioned to standup in March of 2012. He still writes topical jokes, but he focuses his time and energy on one-liners, bits, and running from people who are chasing him with torches.
Influenced by such comics as Greg Giraldo and Dave Attell, Schubert is a true student of comedy whose comedy is a combination of observational, self-deprecational, and topical jokes with sharply written punchlines. Over the years, he has opened for Nate Bargatze, Nick Griffin and Cy Amundson, among others.
When Schubert isn't performing anywhere, he does a lot of online comedy writing. Some of his material has been featured on Comedy Central, Huffington Post, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Reddit, eBaum's World, the New York Times humor blog, DailyComedy, and JokeBlogger.
Does Alex Schubert deserve a bio as long as this one? Probably not, but he doesn't give a shit.
