Welcome, Internet Friend!
Alex Falcone is an average looking comedian living in Portland, OR where he writes for 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 these modest accomplishments, he somehow remains totally down to earth and approachable.
Highlights from Falcone Industries
show EARTHQUAKE HURRICANE
My weekly standup show that I host with incredible comedians Curtis Cook, Bri Pruett, and Anthony Lopez. This is the premiere standup showcase in the city, focusing on the best comics in Portland and beyond.
Every Wednesday at 9:00 inside Velo Cult Bike Shop. Find this week's lineup here: earthquakehurricane.com
Apr 5 My writing team and I played the immersive escape-the-room game 60 Minutes to Escape in Portland. We're pretty good puzzle solvers but terrible spies.
Dec 15 For some reason the Portland Art Museum let the staff of Late Night Action pretend to be docents for an evening. Here's the result.
