In an earlier phase of his life, Ted Alexandro was a music teacher, an experience he used to help co-create the web series “Teacher’s Lounge,” which recently won best Best New Comedy Web Series at the Cynopsis Awards. Ted and I talk almost exclusively about creating the web series and what it takes to bring a project like this together on both the creative side as well as the business side. Ted got his start writing and performing sketches with his writing and performing partner, Hollis James. One of their earlier short films,”Nobody’s Dummy: The Horace and Huey Story“, wasn’t nominated for an Academy Award, but admit it, that would be pretty awesome if it had been. Time Out New York called Ted “One of the top comedians working today”. He has appeared on David Letterman multiple times, Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, The View; he’s taped two half-hour specials on Comedy Central, and made this great appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Ted is also serious about the business side of show business and was the driving force behind the New York Comedians Coalition, which successfully negotiated a pay raise with the notoriously under-paying New York comedy clubs.
