Alexis Dubus in summary

Alexis Dubus is a London-based performer who roams the globe talking nonsense and, more often than not, pretending to be other things.

"Fresh, accessible and hilarious" - The Guardian

Starting off as a sketch-writer and performer with student sketch group Ubersausage! at Edinburgh Fringe he has since made numerous TV and radio appearances all over the world, published a book and written 10 live shows. He also ran and co-hosted the much-loved Falling Down With Laughter comedy club for 6 years with Sy Thomas and is a proud Board Member of the Alternative Comedy Memorial Society. He hosts the Spirits Of The Fringe podcast.

"A unique act on the circuit and, quite simply, one of the funniest" -
