J.B. Alexander

JB is a lovable everyman with a jovial sense of humor tinged with melancholy.  My one-man show The Metamorphosis (about a struggling writer who is transformed into Franz Kafka) was nominated for the Prague Fringe Festival's Inspiration Award, which honors promising new work.  I am currently adapting it for 


In addition to Kafka, I am a great lover of Shakespeare and the classics and have performed major Shakespearean parts such as Claudius and Shylock.  I work as a character actor (both comedic and dramatic) -- perfect for such roles as teacher, doctor, suburban dad, best friend, lawyer, cop, clergy, reporter, politician, professor, or therapist.  Types:  Steve Carell, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jack Lemmon.
