Owner, Instructor, Performer

Bio

Alex Marino is a performer and instructor at the Magnet Theater as well as a freelance motion graphics artist and sideshow performer. Born and raised in Bakersfield California, he started doing improv in high school with the local Comedy Sportz franchise. Since then he has studied at the iO in Los Angeles, Annoyance in Chicago, and the Magnet right here in NYC. He’s had the pleasure of studying with Armando Diaz, Ed Herbstman, Mick Napier, TJ Jagodowski, David Pasquesi, Dave Razowski, Craig Cackowski, Bob Dassie, Jeff Michalski, and Dick Schaal and many many others whom he admires.

Since coming to New York he has created, directed, written and/or performed in dozens of shows at Magnet and elsewhere, and can currently be seen on Thursdays as a member of Hello Laser and with the Armando Diaz Experience, and Saturdays in :Kiss•Punch•Poem:.

He likes magic but he’s bad at it and can juggle but not well. Give him half a chance, though and he’ll gladly hammer a nail into his face or swallow a torch with aplomb.

That’s right. Aplomb.
