Alex Edelman

Everything Handed To You


In 2014, Alex Edelman, a New York-based, Boston-raised comedian, did an hour of comedy called Millennial at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. That hour won the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer and enjoyed nice runs and performances in London, Australia, New York, Los Angeles, and Sweden (!).

The follow-up show, Everything Handed to You, has garnered even more unanimous acclaim. It sold out its entire run at the 2015 Fringe and earned a bushel full of great reviews – it was the second best reviewed comedy show at the entire Festival.


I fondly imagined this was what it might have been like to watch Jerry Seinfeld when he was in his early 20s. There is no greater praise than that. Deserves the huge success that, you’d have to feel, is kind of inevitable.”  ★★★★★ – The Mirror


“A confident, beautifully crafted and politically charged Fringe debut” ★★★★ – Fest Magazine


“Boasting technical flair and a precocious authority, Edelman’s comedy manages to capture the voice of Generation Y” – Guardian
