Introduced to America on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, Alonzo Bodden was runner up on season 2 and came back to win it all on Last Comic Standing season 3 “The Best of the Best.” A regular on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, Alonzo recently filmed his second stand-up comedy special tentatively titled Historically Incorrect, and filmed a guest role on the upcoming ABC comedy Dr. Ken starring Ken Jeong as a doctor married to a therapist.
In 2011, he starred in the comedy special Who’s Paying Attention on Showtime, released a DVD, and hosts a podcast of the same name. That same year, he was a panelist on the syndicated show Inside the Vault. Bodden has also hosted Speed Channel’s 101 Cars You Must Drive and America’s Worst Driver on the Travel Channel, and has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. His first big comedy break came when he was on the New Faces of Comedy showcase at Just for Laughs in Montreal.

He was also the voice of “Thunderon” in Power Rangers Lightspeed.
Alonzo has traveled around the world entertaining USO troops from Iraq to Greenland and everywhere in between.
