Alex Schubert entered the comedy scene thinking that women like guys with a sense of humor, and that his jokes and passable looks could get him laid.
He could not have been more wrong.
Schubert is an up-and-comer in the Cincinnati comedy scene, which is a subtle way of saying he hasn't accomplished shit. He began his journey at the tender age of 16 by writing topical jokes for a New York Times blog. When the blog ended, he kept doing his topical joke shindig, then he transitioned to standup in March of 2012. He still writes topical jokes, but he focuses his time and energy on one-liners, bits, and running from people who are chasing him with torches.
Influenced by such comics as Greg Giraldo and Mitch Hedberg, Schubert's comedy is a nonstop badgering of one-liners with an occasional dark side. These jokes cover topics like the news, his life experiences, and how he feels about his crazy self. One comic described Schubert as "really, really funny", and another said that he "has the ability to turn topics that aren't that funny into something funny".
When Schubert isn't performing at venues that let him do time for some reason, he does a lot of online comedy writing. Some of his material has been featured in the Huffington Post, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Reddit, the New York Times humor blog, and DailyComedy.
In September 2012, he won the Northern Kentucky University Last Comic Standing competition.
