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 four books: Messing With Tourists: Stupid Answers to Stupid QuestionsMessing With Tourists 2: Here We Go Again!, 5 Years Of This? Husband. Father. Comedian. My Story, and The City Bear In The Smokies (a children’s book). Guests on Alex’s Gatlinburg Comedy Tours can purchase his books for half of their regular price.
