Alan Richardson is a comedian and musician based in Boston Massachusetts. His stand-up focuses on outdated pop media, confused life experiences, and flat out lies. He has created several characters with partner and tourmate Matt Minigell: crowd-favorite “A Very Sad Man,” spiritual guides “Hope & Dipper,” and cowboy storytellers “Tex Mansas & The Bloodhound.”
Alan was voted New Hampshires “Best Bar Comic” in both 2014 and 2015, and has been a 3 time Finalist in Empire Comedy Clubs “Couch Comedy” competitions. He was a former co-host of Boston underground comedy series “The Know Show,” and helped create the 24 hour comedy festival ‘Jedfest.” As a musician, Alan gained notoriety as the live drummer in Carissa Johnson’s Electric Party Convention. He can be partially blamed for the band noisebreaker.
In 2017 Alan self-released his debut album An Unknown Man in Unknown Places, featuring a variety of clips from secret house shows and speakeasy bars. His 2019 followup, The Gas Money EP, was recorded live at Empire Comedy Club in Portland ME.
