Alonzo Bodden          

Winner of NBC's "Last Comic Standing"; Regular Panelist on NPR's "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me"

A regular panel member on NPR’s "Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me," Alonzo Bodden has been making audiences around the country laugh for more than 20 years.

Alonzo’s latest (2022) comedy special "Alonzo Bodden: Stupid Don’t Get Tired," was released on YouTube by Helium Comedy Studios. In 2019, he starred in his fourth stand-up special, "Alonzo Bodden: Heavy Lightweight," which premiered exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

His first big comedy break came when he was on the “New Faces of Comedy” showcase at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal. However, it was as the season three winner of NBCʼs Last Comic Standing where Bodden was first introduced to America.

Since then, he has starred in two comedy specials for Showtime: "Historically Incorrect" and "Who’s Paying Attention." His television appearances include ABC’s "Dr. Ken" and "Fresh Off the Boat," "Dr. Phil," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Late Night with Conan O’Brien," Comedy Central’s "The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore" and "Californication." He’s also a reoccurring guest on "The Joe Rogan Experience."

A car and motorcycle aficionado, Bodden hosted Speed Channel’s "101 Cars You Must Drive" and has joined Jay Leno for several off-road trips on his CNBC series "Jay Leno’s Garage." Bodden was a field correspondent on "Animal Nation with Anthony Anderson" and a contributor on the Science Channel’s "How to Build Everything."

Bodden currently hosts the podcast "Who’s Paying Attention?" (part of All Things Comedy) where he gives his unique take on what’s going on in the world.
