Alonzo was born in New York and lives in L.A. Fortunately he's not a rapper because he'd have to shoot himself. Alonzo has appeared on TV's Last Comic Standing, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Make Me Laugh, Friday Night Videos, Thirty-Something, Power Rangers, The Craig Kilborn Show, The Apollo. He was the first comedian invited to appear on The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show and has appeared on many other comedy shows. He’s also got an acting career with roles in Bringin’ Down The House, The Girl Next Door, Angel, Grounded For Life and Profiler among others. Alonzo describes his humor as "Cynically Good-natured" which explains his broad appeal. Alonzo enjoys the "Def-Jam" comedians, but for his comedy to ring true he has to draw on his own experiences, being raised in the "middle-class hood". Alonzo strives to find humor in the commonality of our life experiences and transcend the race and gender boundaries that separate us -- he'd also like to land a really fat endorsement deal with Nike or Reebok or somebody, anybody... he just likes free stuff. Alonzo Bodden has the ability to make people laugh about, racism, sports, travel, shopping, dating, and he can fix your Lear Jet
Alonzo is currently starring in the hit series “America’s Worst Drivers”, a truly hilarious spoof on America’s crazy driving habits and experiences. To the guests of The Smooth Jazz Cruise over the years, he is most famous however, as the #1 heckler and “critic” of our Artists. Being zinged by Alonzo has become the new badge of courage and rite of passage for our new performers and a celebration of love for those who have been taunted by him in past years. Probably the only time that all of the Artists are in one place is when Alonzo performs. He is so beloved that the only time his barbs upset any of them is if they are left out of a show!
