Flex AlexanderWhat was urban comedy like before HBO premiered Russell Simmon’s Def Comedy Jam? If you were a comedy lover, at that time then you already know we were given one comedian at a time to love.

At that time Eddie Murphy was hot and a young comedian by the name of Chris Rock was up and coming and he had just starred in Beverly Hills Cop 2, as he was looking like the heir to the throne.
So again, What was urban comedy like before HBO premiered Russell Simmon’s Def Comedy Jam? Well, we wanted to know the answer to this question so we did something about it.
And here it is, our brand new web series titled Life After Def, which chronicles the lives of comedians who eventually performed of Def Comedy Jam. If you were a comedian at that time trying to break into the Hollywood scenes and you got a chance to perform on the show, your life changed; some for the better and some for the worse.
In this new series, we talk to many comedians who mentioned what it was like as they gave us their opinion on their lives after Def Comedy Jam, with the new series titled Life After Def.
In this new episode we talk with actor and then comedian Flex Alexander. This young new talent in Hollywood was trying to break into a show or a film, and he eventually did with his own show on the then UPN Network with One On One that lasted several years. He was eventually a star in Homeboys From Outer Space, The Uptown Comedy Club, Girlfriends and more.
Flex really started out as a dancer, if you really want to go back to the beginning…
So, we asked what was the series like for him and what were the benefits? How was his career before his performance and after? How is life now?
Alexander answers all of the questions in the interview below:
