Alonzo Bodden’s impressive repertoire -- from his international stand-up comedy performances to his versatile television appearances and podcasts -- has secured him a reputation as an extraordinary entertainer. Best known for winning and captivating America’s attention on NBC’s "Last Comic Standing," Bodden has become one of the world’s most beloved comedians. Bodden started his career in comedy by working for the USO in entertaining troops around the world, everywhere from Iraq to Greenland. He continued building international fame by headlining comedy festivals including “Just for Laughs” in Montreal, “Kilkenny Ireland Festival” in Australia, and “Brighton Beach” in the UK. Being described as “the comedian who combines intimidation and intelligence,” he has quickly become extremely popular among diverse audiences. After becoming a household name since winning "Last Comic Standing," Bodden has hosted numerous shows on the Speed and Travel Channels which include “101 Cars You Must Drive” and “America’s Worst Driver.” He brought his incisive, offbeat take to the ITV show “Inside the Vault,” and has continued to pave his way throughout television. Since then he’s been a regular on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno," and his one hour comedy special, “Who’s Paying Attention?” premiered on Showtime as the second highest rated special in the history of the network. Alonzo Bodden is likely best known as a regular panelist on NPR's "Wait Wait … Don't Tell Me." The nationally syndicated radio show plays to the comic's strength as a purveyor of sharp social and political commentary — not to mention his rich baritone voice.
Bodden entered the national spotlight as the winner of the "Best of the Best" competition on season three of "Last Comic Standing" on NBC. He's parlayed that into two hour-long Showtime comedy specials, most recently last year's brilliantly biting "Historically Incorrect." Bodden also hosts his own acclaimed podcast, "Who's Paying Attention?" where he riffs on everything from politics to cars to his love affair with the Los Angeles Clippers.
