watch Ted Alexandro take on Louis C.K. at Comedy Cellar
Comedian Ted Alexandro took on Louis C.K., Bill Cosby, and Donald Trump during a set earlier this month at Comedy Cellar. In a video of the September 1 performance, which he shared on Twitter today (watch above right now to avoid more spoilers), Ted wasted no time in bringing up Louis, whose FX series Louie he appeared in the first season of. The applause had barely died down when he asked the crowd, "what, does a guy have to be convicted of sexual assault to get an extended ovation?" Ted's set came less than a week after Louis's surprise performance on the same stage, one of his first since admitting to allegations of sexual misconduct. Ted mocked cries of "P.C. culture" stifling free speech, saying, "do you want to live in a world where a man can't politely ask a colleague if he can take off all his clothes and masturbate to completion?"
Ted also had things to say about Bill Cosby, who was just sentenced to three to ten years in prison and ruled a "sexually violent predator," as well as President Donald Trump. Watch the video of Ted's set above.
Meanwhile, Ted wrote on his website about the many things he has on the horizon:
Hello! My new one-hour special “Senior Class of Earth” will be released October 4th! I’m proud to say it’s being released through All Things Comedy, which is a comedian-owned company owned by Bill Burr and Al Madrigal. It will be available to purchase worldwide at www.atcspecials.com and though Vimeo On Demand.
The album version will be released October 5th through 800 Pound Gorilla Records and will be available everywhere you listen to music or comedy.
Some fun news; I’ll be doing Bill Burr’s Monday Morning Podcast on October 2nd and I’m doing Conan on October 4th. I’ll also be doing Marc Maron’s WTF, which will be released around November. I’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, I’ll be touring with Jim Gaffigan throughout 2018-19 on his Fixer Upper Tour, all over the U.S., Canada and Europe. I’ll be doing additional headline dates on the road and at the Comedy Cellar when I’m home in NY. Please check my schedule for updates.
My first two specials (“As Much As You Want” and “I Did It”) are available to download here. Or you can listen anywhere you stream music- Spotify, pandora, Apple Music, Google Play, etc.
