This is the second time i've seen him at the Punchline and he is just as funny this time around! I loved his opening acts too.

Quotes & Highlights

“As you might expect, given his bizarre online trail, his standup is influenced by the non-sequitur-laden absurdism of Mitch Hedberg and Zach Galifianakis. But what makes Koll’s act special is how he bridges the gulf between askew alt-comedy and grounded, observational humor. It’s a rare quality in the alternative-comedy community, where many are intent on out-quirking one another. Whether going on obscure tangents or offering up more straightforward observations, Koll’s comic voice is his own.” —SF Weekly


Developing a taste for the absurd at an early age,  San Francisco comedian Alex Koll’s comedy has grown organically to reflect a far-reaching creativity that has two dirty sneakers planted firmly on the ground. His act dips and weaves between what’s right in front of us all and unexpected forays into the strange.   Alex has performed at the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, garnering a “Best of New Faces” nod, and appeared on Comedy Central’s Live At Gotham. He has also performed at countless festivals and released his debut album _Wizard Hello _on the Rooftop Comedy label in 2011.  Alex is also the two-time winner of the San Francisco Regional Air Guitar Championship. No kidding.
