Alex Nussbaum has presented himself comedically across the Canadian entertainment landscape. 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 have recently released his latest album, "A Number of Bits", at the North By Northeast Music and Arts Festival as well as digitally on iTunes, which he is now touring. Fortunately, Alex's excitement doesn't end there, and he's able to reserve a little more excitement for the airing of his second Just for Laughs gala on CBC and most recently performing at the New Year's Eve Comedy Extravaganza at Massey Hall with host Tom Green.

Thanks for visiting. It was great ending 2014 with a bang at the Massey Hall New Year's Eve Comedy Extravaganza. It was a good year, having released my second comedy album, "A Number of Bits" (to order it or download it, click on the STORE button), touring it across Canada, and appearing on the CBC by way of my Just for Laughs gala. Looking forward to what 2015 will bring. I'm planning to split my time between Toronto and Los Angeles, and will be doing shows on the western Canada coast within the next few months, so go ahead, check out my SHOWS, and sign yourself up to my email list for future news and other fun.
Otherwise, you can hear my albums playing on Sirius XM satellite radio across North America and my Just for Laughs gala can be viewed on the CBC website.
