Alle graduated from Glebe High School and attended a semester at Carleton University, but quickly realized that college was not for him. He then worked odd jobs including events catering, asbestos removal and worked at his brother’s Newfoundland Bakery before moving to Toronto to pursue a career in acting.

He began with stand-up comedy and in his first few efforts at local comedy clubs in Toronto, he won the quarterfinals of a contest to find Canada’s funniest comedian. He knew from that point forward that the stage was where he wanted to be. He was a regular on the standup circuit in Toronto, New York, and Los Angeles throughout his career and has performed in such comedy clubs as Caroline’s, Dangerfield’s, the Improve, and the Laugh Factory. He landed the lead role in the independent film The Events Leading Up to My Death which led to a starring role in the feature film Prom Night IV and a feature in Liar’s Edge. His television achievements range from guest roles on The Courier, The Shield, Sleeper Cell, JAG, Top Cops, Extreme Makeover – Home Edition to Class of ’96, the College Years, E.N.G. and Saved by the Bell. He also directed and acted in Another House on Mercy Street
To support his family while living in LA and pursuing an acting career, he also began a successful construction company with his then wife Deana Paine called Profix, Inc. that handled both private and commercial renovations.
Alle had an intense personality, a great sense of humor, a contagious enthusiasm for life, and a passion for the performing arts. He lived his life unapologetically and fully. Without a doubt, everyone who knew him has at least one story to tell. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
May he rest in peace. Allah yerhamo.
