When I was a kid, my favorite movie was Back to the Future. I wanted to be like Michael J. Fox. I'd tell people when I grow up I was gonna build a time machine and travel back in time. Ever meet any black people who have fantasies about going back in Time?

Biography

Alex Endeshaw is leading the next generation of ethnic American comedians. The son of poor Ethiopian refugees, Alex came to America in the 80's and fell in love...with his TV; constantly imitating actors, TV personalities even cartoon characters. He grew up in Queens, NY, hearing Sam Kinison make jokes about his starving countrymen. Alex knew he would have his revenge, becoming a stand up comedian.

Alex makes light of being from a country most people never heard of, the rough journey to America, mistaken for Indian, his crazy immigrant family and the trials of going to a predominantly white school.

Alex makes his living as a clown and children's entertainer after a brief disastrous life in Corporate America. Sesame Street beats Wall Street!

For fun, Alex impersonates Sammy Davis Jr. in a Rat Pack Tribute Band that performs at casinos and theaters in California. He sings, dances, and does impressions.
