Alex has proven to be a huge runaway hit with the YouTube generation, gathering 2.5 million followers and hundreds of millions of views across his social media platforms. He began performing stand up in 2007, going on to be a state finalist in triple j’s 2009 RAW Comedy competition. After a stint in radio, Alex relocated to Los Angeles where he performed duties for The Hot Hits Live From LA, gathering content from various A-List celebrities at red carpet events.
In 2012, Alex brought his various online characters, songs and stand-up comedy to life in a hilarious live stage solo show, Alex Williamson and Friends. This show and his subsequent live shows have sold out countless times at all the major comedy festivals since 2012, and internationally at the Edinburgh Fringe from 2013, where on his debut he was called “the future of comedy” by the most notorious reviewer in the UK, The Scotsman’s Kate Copstick. In 2015, Alex starred alongside Aussie comedy greats Jim Jefferies and Greg Fleet in zom-com Me and My Mates vs The Zombie Apocalypse.
