This article is about the Althea Tapes character. For other pages with the same name, see: Ed

Ed is a survivor of the outbreak in AMC's The Althea Tapes. He is one of the many survivors encountered and interviewed by Althea.


Ed is a somewhat cynical and sarcastic individual. However, he generally is shown to be friendly, easy-going, and witty. Before the outbreak, he was a comedian but said that his jokes usually flopped. Throughout the interview, he makes many self-deprecating jokes about himself, mostly about his career doing stand-up. He states that he regrets doing it since it caused him to be away from his family. He reveals he had wanted to do stand-up not for his family, but so people could like him. Ed starts with a very pessimistic attitude, but overtime becomes more optimistic. After a walker attacks, Ed goes on to tell a story about how he almost died, in a very comedic fashion which Althea finds funny, showing he can be a good comedian and is better when improvises and thinking on the fly rather than saying rehearsed bits. Ed becomes thankful towards Althea after reminding him what it's like to make people laugh.

Ed was originally from Taylor, Texas and lived with his parents and sister, with the latter eventually having a son that Ed never met.
