Listening to Alex perform stand-up comedy, two things happen for sure: you always laugh and you never forget the first time you hear his jokes. Most people also have the same thought: “Hmmm, why didn’t I think of that?” Let me tell you why, because even if you did think of it, you would have not crafted it into the incredible side-splitting joke that Alex did. He looks at every topic exhaustively until every comedic angle has been squeezed dry. No topic is safe. From the hardships of marriage, to hardships in living in Manila, to Zombies hardships (seriously), he finds what is funny and amplifies it with outrageous act outs and all out delivery. If there is any other penultimate headliner in Manila today, they pale in comparison to Alex Calleja.
