Like Rocky Balboa, Alex Velluto is the son of an Italian immigrant and brings the same intensity, will, and drive to the comedy stage. In 2016, Alex was voted 'Best Comedian' by City Weekly Magazine. He was named "Best of Fest" at the inaugural Golden Spike Comedy Festival, and is the winner of the Finger Lakes Comedy Festival in Ithaca, NY. Alex is a regular at Wiseguys Comedy Club where he has headlined and worked with some of the biggest names in comedy. His debut comedy special "Alex Velluto: Spurious" is currently streaming on VidAngel.com.
He has also “gone the distance” in many competitions and festivals across the country.
Alex was a finalist in the the Funniest Person in Utah competition, and The Salt Lake Comedy Festival stand up competition, has performed at the Idaho Laugh Festival, the Golden Spike Comedy Festival, and Finger Lakes Comedy Festival, and Cape Fear Comedy Festival.
In addition to his stand-up comedy, Alex is a co-host of the "Happy Valley Podcast", and is renowned for referring to himself in the third person, and is an excellent writer of comedy bios about himself that everybody likes.
