Comedian Alex Edelman Gets Celeb Support at Opening Night of 'Just for Us' Broadway Run!

Alex Edelman has made his Broadway debut!

The 34-year-old stand-up comedian celebrated the opening of his one-man play Just For Us on Monday night (June 26) at the Hudson Theatre in New York City.

Alex got support from many celebs at the opening night following acclaimed international runs of the show in London, Edinburgh, Melbourne, Boston, and Washington D.C., as well as a six-time extended off-Broadway engagement across three venues in NYC.

Celebs in attendance at the opening included Rachel Brosnahan and husband Jason Ralph, Busy Philipps, Kathryn Gallagher, playwright Jeremy O. Harris, Mike Birbiglia, Kevin Cahoon, Alysia Reiner, Billy Eichner, Laura Benanti, Michael Urie, Miriam Silverman, Helene Yorke, Regina Spektor, Krysta Rodriguez, Micaela Diamond, Gus Birney, and Louisa Jacobson.

The play “is an exploration of identity and our collective capacity for empathy. In the wake of a string of anti-Semitic rhetoric pointed in his direction online, standup comic Edelman decides to go straight to the source; specifically, Queens, where he covertly attends a meeting of White Nationalists and comes face-to-face with the people behind the keyboards. What happens next forms the backbone of the shockingly relevant, utterly hilarious, and only moderately perspirant stories.”

Just For Us is running through August 19.
