Alan Shuman, born in Boston near the end of the Vietnam War and educated in the mean streets of Newton MA, has been marching inexorably towards comedic stardom since he was able to toddle forward. His path was inevitable though predictably circuitous, and lacking the sufficient body fat to endure New England winters, he headed for Florida. Comedy was always the destination and the journey included several independent films, an improv troupe called "Improv Export Co.", two internet radio programs ("In the Mix" and "The Anything Bucket"), an internet TV program called "The Asylum" and ultimately stand-up at The Improvs in Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, as well as numerous other comedy clubs throughout South Florida. Alan is truly fearless. He has jumped out of an airplane, broken the speed of sound in his Lincoln, and will attempt to eat a vegetable in the near future!
