Alex Elkin is a serious jokester and “Screaming at Shapes,” his latest comedy release, is serious fun. Alex, winner of the 2016 San Francisco Comedy Competition, is 100% committed to making you laugh. He’s bombastic and forthright, ironically abrasive, provocative and witty. Fearless, energetic, diving into characters, tackling taboos and hot button topics, Alex Elkin is an emphatic and versatile performer. “Screaming at Shapes” shines as Alex highlights his domestic life and his travels overseas to entertain the military. His grievances against puberty, obnoxious pet owners, nosy children, and his epiphanies about bidets and transgender people, are all rendered in highly-detailed hilarity.
Alex Elkin has had it with outrage culture. Alex doesn’t take things too seriously, or too personally, (and doesn’t think you should either). “Screaming at Shapes” advocates that people making fun of each other is a key to bringing them together. Alex isn’t afraid to challenge what is and what’s not socially acceptable—even if it lands him in Facebook jail. The burly, gregarious, larger than life comedian with even longer hair, practices what he preaches, making light of himself with perfect, self-deprecating comedy. Boasting flowing locks and brilliant shock, “Screaming at Shapes” encourages you to let your hair down.
