ALEX KNOX is the rare performer who is equally comfortable as a leading man and a comedic character actor.

Born in Santa Monica and raised in Irvine, CA, Alex has performed in the country's top regional theaters, from the Pasadena Playhouse and to Yale Repertory Theatre. Alex is also a voice actor with experience in audiobooks and ADR Looping. He hosted the web series Science Talks with Alex Knox, and, as an improv performer, has entertained thousands of guests at So Cal’s top theme parks.

Alex wrote and performed No Static at All, a one-man play about seeking spiritual enlightenment through the music of Steely Dan. The show, developed and directed by Becca Wolff, has performed to sold-out houses in New York (5-star review from Time OutWinner: Outstanding Solo Performance), Seattle, and Los Angeles (Winner: Best Solo Show at Hollywood Fringe Festival). Time Out New York raved: “A stunning solo show... What begins as a love letter to a band expands into a ballad that explores the depths of the human condition." 

As a BFA Acting student at UC Santa Barbara, Alex created, directed, and performed in a physical theater piece called EYE, which featured over a dozen masks that Alex designed and built. The show was revived at the Summer Cabaret at Yale while Alex was an MFA Acting student at the Yale School of Drama. The New Haven Independent praised the show: “Watching EYE is like watching a classic Roadrunner or Bugs Bunny cartoon, full of action and humor and fun for all ages. It’s also like watching Spy vs. Spy leap off the margins of Mad magazine.”

“It’s hard to imagine a more dashing leading man than Knox… a talented, charismatic young actor.”

“Knox is a consummate comic cameo player.”
--New Haven Advocate (Review of “The Little Prince”)
