About Alex Stokes
Alex Stokes jumped headfirst into the world of comedy after performing at his first open mic night in Knoxville, TN about six years ago. Leaving behind a 14-year career as an investment broker and banker, Stokes began touring the country as a stand-up comedian, making stops at the famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles and clubs in New York. Rather than moving to the big city like many other stand-ups, Alex decided to stay true to his roots and hone his comedy in Gatlinburg TN.
Stokes has authored two popular books: Messing With Tourists: Stupid Answers to Stupid Questions and 5 Years Of This? Husband. Father. Comedian. My Story. Guests on Alex’s Gatlinburg Comedy Tours can purchase his books for half of their regular price.
