Alex Lemoine on Being the Valley's Youngest Stand-Up Comic and How High School Has Provided Plenty of Material

The 16-year-old junior at Skyline High School in Mesa is arguably the Valley's youngest comedian and has spent the last couple years honing his craft at a variety of open mic nights and DIY comedy shows.
