Alexander Carr (1878–1946) was a Russian born stage and screen actor, writer, vaudevillian, burlesque and circus performer.

In Chicago he appeared at the Trocadero theatre. His first New York appearance was at the Circle Theatre in 1904 at the Circle Theatre in "Wine, Women and Song" imitating David Warfield.
