Mo Alexander was crowned “The Funniest Person in Memphis” before he’d ever performed a headlining set. Raised in Tennessee on a comedy diet of the Marx Brothers, George Carlin, and Bill Hicks, Mo developed a cutting standup style that blends through-provoking observations with raunchy irreverence, and landed appearances on Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, BET’s ComicView, and an opening slot touring with Keenan Ivory Wayans—for which he was handpicked by Wayans over Wanda Sykes. A staple of The Bob and Tom Radio Show and known to listeners of Rock 103 as the “Black Guy” from the Wake Up Crew’s popular “Ask a Black Guy” segment, Mo continues his mission to “save the world, one comedy show at a time,” even if he has to “kick a kid off a bike to do it.”

Comics take Five Star Dive Bar by storm the second Thursday of every month. Modeled on the bar’s method of attracting bands—giving them a venue to play between Indianapolis and Chicago, and forcing their tour buses to stop with a giant magnet—Five Star Comedy Bar has already attracted an eye-catching lineup of TV-tested laugh-makers. Audiences may recognize performers from Chapelle’s Show,Mr. Show, Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, and other laugh depots.
