Alex Edelman’s first show, Millennial – about very traumatic stock
photos and young people - won an Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best
Newcomer, the first show by an American to do so since 1997. The
follow-up, Everything Handed to You - about identity and the
availability of plug sockets in airports - was even more acclaimed:
selling out its entire Edinburgh run and garnering the second-best
reviews of any comedy show at the Festival. It was also filmed in its
entirety for a special called Live at the BBC, which is currently
available on Netflix.

Just For Us is what comes next. Nominated for the Barry award at
Melbourne International Comedy Festival, earning the prestigious
Herald Angel award as well as being nominated for the Edinburgh Comedy
Award Best Show, it’s about gorillas that can-do sign language and
tribalism. Come.

‘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.’ ★★★★★ Mirror

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


‘Every story is a precision-engineered Rolls-Royce of a routine,
perfectly timed and constructed, each morsel of information released
just at the right moment.’ Chortle.
