Comedian Alex Thomas

 

 

LA Based Comedian Alex Thomas came over to do the Real Deal Comedy Jam in November of 2005.  Alex Thomas was a huge name at the time on the urban stand-up comedy scene in the US so bringing him over was a big achievement of the Real Deal Comedy Jam.  Especially considering that the Real Deal Comedy Jam was only 5 shows old.  At the time Alex Thomas was a regular on all the big hip hop video's and had recently toured the US with rappers Snoop Dog, Dr Dre and Eminem on the 'Up in smoke' tour.

 

I was a little disappointed by how Alex's set went down, his set was far too US based with not enough reference points for a UK audience to relate too.  I think if it had of been adjusted slightly it would of been much better.   This was a lesson that I learnt when bringing in comedians from abroad.  I now insist on all comedians doing research just to make sure there material is relevant.  An obvious example of this is if you say Football in the UK straightaway we'll be thinking about what an American person would know as soccer.

 

I enjoyed working with Alex Thomas he was a cool guy plus the lessons learnt on this show have held us in good stead ever since.  Nathan Wilkins JEP Entertainment Ltd
