Alex Stypula is…a comedian. He gets paid to make people laugh, and he’s one of the best and one of the most creative the city of Pittsburgh has to offer. Alex has many credits i could list, so I’m going to. He was the winner of the Gilda’s Club Best Comic in Pittsburgh, he has performed at Fest in Gainesville, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, Scruffy City Festival, Whiskey Bear Comedy Festival, and the Pittsburgh Comedy Festival. He was featured on the cover of the Pittsburgh City Paper. I once witnessed him embody a loud mouth, NASCAR Lovin’, wife beatin’, man of the south for the first 20 minutes of his set and kill! Absolutely crush! After his set, I asked him if it was character he’s been working on. He told me that he “just felt like doing it”. So, what I’m trying to say is if you have the opportunity to catch Alex Stypula while he’s still a regular in the Pittsburgh comedy scene, do it! In fact, Alex will be recording his first comedy album June 11th at Club Cafe. Go see him then!
If you’re a Does This Hold Up fan then you’re very familiar with Alex’s brand of humor. You may have even heard him on the drinking partners Live at Hitchhiker Brewing episode. Since Alex loves being a guest on podcasts so much, I thought, maybe he likes listening to podcasts as well. Surprise, Surprise, he does! Alex also really enjoys science, so it’s not a surprise that he would review a podcast that incorporates science and comedy.
Alex chose to review StarTalk with Neil Degrasse Tyson. StarTalk features the incredibly witty and entertaining Neal Degrass Tyson, who also happens to be an American astrophysicist, cosmologist, author, and science communicator (taken straight from his Wikipedia). You should probably be aware of who Neal Degrass Tyson is by now if you’re reading this article. I’ll let Alex introduce you to his podcast.
I love Neil DeGrasse Tyson. I love science, and comedy.
