He began his illustrious career with a staggering 25 second performance at the Tacoma Comedy Club during an Open Mic. Despite that failure, Alfred Carcieri quickly became hooked and has been getting up on stage to tell jokes as often as possible ever since.
Alfred has since managed to last longer than 25 seconds, at least on stage. He brings a strong blend of sarcasm and wit to the stage with a clear New England influence. Whether he is talking about his upbringing, being the only Italian family surrounded by rednecks, or covering current events, he is doing it with the same sarcastic tone that kept him in the Principal’s office throughout his formative years.
