Alex Powers is an American stand-up comedian, actress, and writer from Baltimore, MD. As a comic, she has been described as a "pervy, middle-aged man in the body of a hot lesbian." Her stand-up has been characterized as edgy, and remarkably smart.

 

She hilariously uses irony in addressing issues of racism, sexism, and other social turmoils. Much of her material focuses on life as a lesbian and the hysterical inner workings of her romantic relationship. She presents her sexuality in a way that is surprisingly relatable to any crowd, giving her a widespread appeal. Her writing style is a combination of quick punchlines and dry deliveries. Her routine is heavy on sharp one-liners, laced with well crafted storytelling. People always mistake her for Morgan Murphy (because of the hair) but Alex is far less dry. In fact, Alex is usually wet.

 

Alex's comedy career took off after her first appearance on stage at the Baltimore Comedy Factory in 2007. She has opened regularly for Carlos Mencia (HBO, Comedy Central) and Pablo Francisco (MADtv, The Tonight Show) in comedy clubs all over North America, from Gotham Comedy Club in New York City to the Hollywood Improv in Los Angeles, CA. Alex has also performed with Bobby Lee, Bill Burr, Steve Byrne, Maria Bamford, Bobcat Goldthwait and Pauly Shore to name a few. In 2017, she appeared on season 3 of Laughs (FOX, Hulu) in a total of three episodes.

 

She's had her share of hardships, too. She taped an episode of "West Coast Comedy" for Hulu, but Hulu stopped airing the show shortly after her taping. Bummer. She was also a finalist for the 2016 Martin Grant, but she lost to a white guy whose suits are more expensive than her good kidney. (The left one is the good one.)

 

Alex moved to Los Angeles, CA in 2012 and now resides there with her lesbian lover, their dog and three cats. She has starred in several short films and web series while performing stand-up all over the United States.
