Best of the Fest: Assembly Hall, Edinburgh, 2018
Always Be Comedy: The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
QI (TV recording): TV Centre, London, 2023 

Boston comic Alex Edelman featured on the bill for the Best of the Fest showcase that I saw at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018.  Edelman’s perfectly-timed and constructed delivery was brilliant instantly making the audience laugh about tales about tribalism and upbringing.  He is a brilliant storyteller and an excellent raconteur.

The American comedian played Always Be Comedy in September 2019.  His set was inspired as he talked about his experiences of living in Britain including a hysterical routine about trying to get served in a food shop.  The comic detail in his routine was joyous and he was an instant hit with the audience.

On an Anglo-American edition of QI, the fun-filled fact quiz hosted by Sandi Toksvig, I watched the recording at TV Centre in London in March 2023, where Edelman was a jovial guest.
