When Upright Citizens Brigade announced its closure, he improvised online learning.

Andrew Alexander has greatly uplifted comedy in Chicago. He introduced online performances where shows could be aired through social platforms and not live recordings.
Typically, learning lasted for eight weeks and could only take three hours a day, but with the new technology, course time was reduced to four weeks, thus making it more accessible. People who worked on different shifts could quickly attend the sessions while at their working stations.
The new platform was limitless, and it accommodated thousands of students from states of New York and Florida. In a span of less than two hours, students engaged in so many activities and games that were mind-opening.
According to research done, the online thing was more favorable compared to staging events. Most argued that scenes were very brief, consumed less time, and weather change was no longer a challenge.
