Keith Alberstadt has been climbing the comedy ladder for over ten years. Late night TV appearances, freelance writing, military tours in the Middle East–Keith has done just about everything and continues to do so.
“Really cerebral and witty, witty lines.”
–Roseanne Barr, Last Comic Standing
Born and raised the youngest of four in Nashville, TN, Keith developed a mixture of sarcasm and southern charm that led to his calling. It would have to wait, however, as he first worked in athletics for his alma mater Vanderbilt — marketing associate, sales rep, even the sideline reporter for their football radio broadcasts. All the while honing his craft at open mics around town, he hit the road full time a few years later.
“I watched his show and thought ‘Wow, this guy is really funny and is gonna leapfrog the pack.’ He’s funny, and it’s a smart funny.”
–Kathleen Madigan, Comic
With a playful personality that radiates onstage, Keith grabs every audience with his genuine likability and a clever wit unmatched in the field today.
“Keith is a genius. And his comedy is PG-13, which is the toughest kind of humor to consistently pull off, and the crowds adore him for it.”
–Gram Slaton, Exec Director, Aspen Laff Festival
After performing regularly at comedy clubs across the country, Keith soon moved to New York City. He’s been piling up notable accomplishments ever since…
- The Late Show with David Letterman
- Late Night with Seth Meyers
- Last Comic Standing
- The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
- Saturday Night Live (Weekend Update freelance writer)
- Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (monologue joke freelance writer)
- Several tours for US troops in the Middle East
- Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen
- Final Four of CMT’s “Next Big Comic” Search
Keith also has four albums in rotation on Pandora, SiriusXM Radio, and various online platforms. His latest, Walk It Off, ranked in the Top Ten comedy albums on iTunes the day after his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
“I thought I had seen everyone who can make me laugh. Then, along comes Keith Alberstadt. He’s become one of my top ten favorite comedians.”
–Mark Ridley, Owner, Comedy Castle (Detroit)
Inspired by family, marriage, and idiosyncrasies in life that often go unnoticed, Keith is a favorite at corporate parties and comedy clubs all over the country, including his home club, the world-famous Comedy Cellar in New York City.
“Keith Alberstadt has traveled the globe with Comics On Duty for more than a decade – entertaining thousands of men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces from the front lines to the base clubs and theaters. On stage and off, Keith is one of my favorite comedians of all time. He is extremely funny, humble, honest and a fantastic human being. There are few comics today that would rank as high on my charts as Keith Alberstadt!”
–Rich Davis, Exec Producer, Comics on Duty World Tour
