Growing up in the remains of an old Italian neighborhood in New Jersey, pizza was what Alexis’s family ordered when his grandmother was too tired to cook. Later, when he started playing school sports, he would wait for the team bus directly in front of Frank’s Pizzeria. It was one of those places that had the formica benches and tables, a long counter, the fruit punch fountain machine, and a bunch of loitering guys with attitudes. A friend’s older brother would hook Alexis up with a slice to keep him company on the bus ride.
As a comedian who performs multiple times a night, pizza is still a very important part of life for Alexis.He enjoys many pizzas, but none as much as the one in front of him.
