Alex Falcone is a moderately attractive comedian living in Portland, OR where he writes for the The Portland Mercury and the internationally syndicated 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.
Featured Content. Only The Best.

podcast Robin Hood (2010)
Sep 18Everybody knows the story of Robin Hood: a wiley young fox stealing from king lion and a his servant snake to give to the other creatures of the forest. It's a good story and what it didn't need was a dour remake starring Gladiator.
I'll be emceeing a crazy spelling bee for celebrities!
This is a crazy open mic in Portland where one comic is selected to (drunkenly) heckle the performers. Since I don't drink, I'll be consuming LOTS of milkshakes.
Friday/Saturday at 10:30pm, the basement of the McMenamin's Crystal Hotel lights up with awesome free comedy.
podcast Veggie Tales
Sep 11Computer animation in the 90s was so bad, the creators of Veggie Tales opted for vegetables because they were easier to draw than people. The primitive animation also smoothed over all the slavery in the Old Testament.
Sep 10The upcoming off-year election is months away, but I already have a favorite political billboard.
Sep 3If there's a crime in Baltimore, The Wire will solve it. If there's a crime ripped from the headlines, Law & Order will solve it. If there's a crime involving Germanic animals, Grimm will solve it. But if there's a crime involving a Marine's body falling out of the sky, you need the fine folks at NCIS.
