Welcome, Internet Friend!
Alex Falcone is a moderately attractive comedian living in Portland, OR where he writes for the The Portland Mercury and the public radio show Live Wire! Radio. He's the creator and host of the live talk show Late Night Action w/ Alex Falcone and the surprisingly popular podcast Read it and Weep, in which people pay him to suffer through bad books and movies. One time he was on the IFC show Portlandia and he still gets emails about it.
Despite all these amazing accomplishments, he remains totally down to earth and approachable.

Our long national nightmare is over. I'm making my triumphant return to Helium Comedy Club!
Headlining is Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah, so he'll probably be good too BUT ME!
Friday & Saturday 7:30 and 10pm plus hosting the open mic on Tuesday night.
Jul 29 The full video of our amazing show at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival. I had the privilege of interviewing Aparna Nancherla, Myq Kaplan, festival co-founder Andy Wood, and musical comedian Henry Phillips. Watch this because otherwise nobody would believe it happened.
Jul 22 I love cake and pop songs so I really should love the Rihanna/Chris Brown song "Birthday Cake." But I have issues.
Jul 22 I shot a gun for the first time last week. It's like laser tag but less fun. I wrote about it in the Portland Mercury focusing on the parts I'm bad at.
Jul 18 I hate the GEICO pig so much. His name is Maxwell and he's the worst. THE WORST!

Aug 20The best way to protest the new, terrible Ninja Turtles movie is to watch the old terrific (but only because we were kids) Ninja Turtles movie. So that's what we did.
Aug 14Despite making "old vs. new" a central premise of the movie,The Expendables 3: The Squeakqueldoesn't try to break any new ground in the action genre. It's main differentiating feature is a casting director who can't say no. If you like explosions and playing the game, "Oh, he still does movies?" then you'll loveThe Expendables 3.
podcast Step Up: All In
Aug 13Chris and Tanya LOVE the Step Up movies. Alex and Stephen do not really care for the Step Up movies. There's only one way to solve this: dance battle!
podcast Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin
Aug 8Do you like magic? How about realism? How about combining them into a 32+ hour slog for no apparent reason? That's Mark Helprin's novel Winter's Tale.
We watched the new 50 Shades of Grey trailer (along with some other silliness).
podcast The Rising by Brian Keene
Jul 30This is a book about zombies. Sounds fun, right? But check this out: what if a book about zombies... wasn't fun at all? That's The Rising.
