Alex Collyard is an experienced podcaster and comedian from Minneapolis who currently resides in Chicago. He hasappeared as a guest on the podcasts Next At Bat (NoisePicnic), Double Bill (NoisePicnic), These Parts, and Making New Friends (Peaches and Hot Sauce) as well as hosting and producing his own sketch and improv comedy podcast Cold Read (NoisePicnic). He is an ensemble member at pH Comedy Theater in Chicago, and can be seen performing his many characters at only the most cool and hip and very alt comedy shows around town. When not performing, you can find him desperately trying to recover the lyrics he wrote as a teen from his old Xanga account so he can finally start that screamo band and become that scene kid he was never brave enough to become.

You can check out his videos on Youtube, his poetry and photos on Instagram, and his genius jokes and musings on Twitter. If you would like to book Alex on your show or for voiceover, contact him at
