If you're from Canada and you recognize Alex Nussbaum, it's likely because he's presented himself comedically across the Canadian TV dial. From his standup debut on CTV/Comedy Network's Comedy Now to his follow-up on CBC's Just for Laughs and Vancouver Comedyfest, through his appearances on Video On Trial and numerous Canadian & U.S. national TV ads, Alex is a familiar face, and voice. His debut comedy CD, Absolutely Free!*, continues to run in heavy rotation throughout North America on SiriusXM. He's also received a Canadian Comedy Award nomination for Best Male Stand-up and was chosen Best Comedy Show of the Year in Toronto's NOW Magazine.

While performing standup, Alex continues to provide numerous character voices for animated programs on Teletoon and the Cartoon Network, most notably over two dozen guest voices on Pink Panther and Pals including the supporting lead, "Big Nose”.

Nussbaum is not new to animation. Back in in his day-job days, he worked on the drawing side of things - designing characters, props, locations or whatever new hat the main character happened to be wearing that episode. He did this over several years for many shows including Magic School Bus, George & Martha, and that Ace Ventura cartoon a few people watched.

After a short time away from stand-up, Nussbaum returned to the stage with his debut one man show at the Toronto Fringe Festival, "Handbook to the Future: A Brave New Worrier”, which won Patrons' Pick.

Alex is excited to be releasing his latest album, "A Number of Bits", on iTunes and elsewhere this spring. He's similarly thrilled for his new Just for Laughs gala to air soon on the aforementioned Canadian TV.


“His act has matured and gone to astonishing places. Nussbaum can find the funny in seemingly incongruous things.
He's stand-up comedy's great lateral thinker.”
- NOW Magazine, Toronto

"His comedy is strong and his delivery stronger… Nussbaum is a joke machine, with quick-hitting and unique takes on subjects rarely heard in standup routines... I always think Nussbaum should be bigger than he is."
- Georgia Straight, Vancouver
