Blake Wexler started doing stand-up at the age of 15 in Philadelphia, then moved to Boston in 2007 to pursue his comedy career and attend Emerson College.
While at Emerson Blake was named as one of the funniest college students in the country at The Rooftop Aspen Comedy Festival two years in a row, and after graduating with degrees in journalism and political science he moved to Los Angeles. Blake’s first Hollywood job was Keegan Michael-Key’s assistant on the Emmy awarding winning show Key & Peele, and since then he’s been headlining clubs and colleges across the country.
In addition to stand-up, Blake has written for Comedy Central, guest starred in the final season of the critically acclaimed Review w/ Forrest MacNeil, was the first comedian/writer to appear on the new ABC/Snapchat show Watch Party: The Bachelor, and can be regularly heard on The Cracked Podcast & The Todd Glass Show.

They say the past is a foreign country. (Trust us, it’s a saying!) What they leave off in that aphorism is the fact that the foreign land of Past-zakhstan is a foreign country of constant pranks and goofs. From 1950s America to Renaissance Italy to the Norman conquest of England, our ancestors were all about changing the world AND yoink-ing each other every step of the way.
On this week’s episode of The Cracked Podcast, Alex Schmidt is LIVE at UCB Sunset with comedians Caitlin Gill, Christine Medrano, and Blake Wexler. They’ll run down the all-time silliest nonsense of actual human history. And the audience joins in at the end with some historical pranks and goofs of their own, because our live shows are interactive and fun like that.
