Alexis Dubus in summary

Alexis Dubus is a London-based performer who's somehow got away with travelling the world talking nonsense and, more often than not, pretending to be other things.

He studied Philosophy and Psychology at the University of Warwick, where he became a member of the comedy sketch group Ubersausage, of whom a mildly embarrassing video exists somewhere online involving them and a man they genuinely believed to be from Kazakhstan.

These days you can find Alexis on the comedy, cabaret, spoken word and festival circuits, doing what he does. More of that below...
