Dana Alexander is unlike any comedian, male or female, I’ve seen before. Painfully honest and absolutely fearless, she maintains an impressive balance between American confidence and British self-deprecation, which makes the early-evening crowd immediately warm to her. She calls out for alpha males and reports back on all the beta and omega males she’s met along the way, speaking about sex with a maturity that most comedians can only dream of. She comes from an eccentric family stationed all over the world, and in perfect delivery makes the most inane of their comments hilarious. Alexander is proud of everything she is, and rightly so – there’s no excuse not to see her do her thing.
