The shortlist of nominees for Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards from this 2014 EdFringe are out, and among the Brits and Aussies is one young Yank — 25-year-old American Alex Edelman, with his first EdFringe show, “Millennial.”

Edelman started performing stand-up and soaking up the scene in Boston while still in high school, then moved to New York City for college and to further his comedy education.

Check out a brief clip from Edelman’s show, thanks to our friends at Chortle and Chortle’s Fast Fringe:
