Thank You So Much For Coming

You are cordially invited… Cynthia, the ultimate party host, is in the midst of throwing her most fabulous party ever! A hilarious, immersive one-woman character clown show that explores loneliness, femininity, and the pressure to be seen. Playful, absurd and unhinged, Cynthia wrestles with desire and disgust at the prospect of being loved and known in a world filled with ubiquitous, yet too often empty, encounters. A delightful descent into pure madness! Awards: Best Immersive (TVO Awards), Best of Broadwater (Hollywood Fringe). “A beautifully surreal show with an extraordinary performance.” (Noho Arts).

Her acting and writing work has been featured in numerous outlets, some of which include: HULU, Vulture, New York Magazine, and Vanity Fair. Alex trained at The New Actor’s Workshop (NYC) under the guidance of Mike Nichols before focusing on comedy (The Groundlings, The Upright Citizen’s Brigade, The Second City) but identifies most as a clown (The Idiot Workshop, The Clown School). In her comedy, Alex is interested in the risk of losing the logical and luxuriating in the joy of the moment.

You can see her on Adult Swim, Amazon, HBO, TVS, and stages across LA.

Currently, she’s touring her award-winning solo show “Tree”— which was called “one of LA’s Top Ten Shows” by Stage Raw and “a must see” by the Times Colonist. She has also led workshops across the country for people interested in exploring techniques that implement vulnerability, physicality, and wholeheartedness to give their performance a unique edge.”
