Description

Alonzo Bodden was born and grew up in the suburbs of Queens, New York. “It’s not quite the hood, but it played the ’hood on rap records.” Bodden studied aerospace in school and became a licensed aircraft mechanic. That was his first career. Bodden worked on everything from Stealth Fighters to DC-10’s to private jets, and then they started drug testing, just kidding. Teaching aircraft mechanics led to his career in comedy. Bodden had to make the students laugh.

His first big break came at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. He won season three o_f Last Comic Standing_. He’s hosted television series including_ 101 Cars You Must Drive_ on Speed Channel and A_merica’s Worst Driver _on the Travel Channel. He’s done all the late night shows, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, The Wayans Bros., and Comedy Central Presents, to name a few. He’s worked around the world for the USO. Bodden has also played a security guard, bouncer, crook, and cop on numerous shows and a couple films including Bringing Down the House starring Steve Martin, and Scary Movie 4. Of course, his big credit is doing monster voices for Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue. No, he wasn’t in the suit, he was just the voice. *
