Alex Berg

Alex Berg grew up in Connecticut, where there’s not much to do besides climb trees and read Calvin & Hobbes. Shortly after getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Vassar College, he threw a pair of cargo shorts and a few t-shirts into a duffel bag and drove out to LA. Now, Alex spends the bulk of his waking hours writing, acting, and improvising. He’s now the artistic director of UCB LA, so he guesses it’s all been worth it. Currently, he performs with UCB house teams Sentimental Lady and Convoy, and can frequently be seen prowling around backstage hoping to sit in with other shows as well. Occasionally, he shows up on television, in shows like Terriers, Reno! 911, and MANswers. Recently, he played a naked old lady in Hell Baby (Sundance 2013) and a post apocalyptic hipster in Best Friends Forever (Slamdance 2013). Beyond all that, he’s a huge science nerd and a bit unkempt. Deal with it.
