What do you do to follow up being the runner-up on one of NBC’s most popular shows and “Instant Career Makers For Comics”, Last Comic Standing, well if you are Alonzo Bodden, you come back the next season and win the whole darn thing!! With that being said, Alonzo Bodden has become one of the funniest and most recognized comedians and TV Personalities in America, and then went on to also judge the NBC hit show that he so fondly won (Along with comedy powerhouses Kathleen Madigan and ANT), as well as various other shows on cable and build a successful movie career. Not bad for a guy who once worked the door at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood, and in the interview below tells an incredible story of how after getting noticed at the prestigious “Just For Laughs” Festival in Montreal (This is pretty much the Super Bowl for comedians), he had some of the world’s most popular comedians now greeting him as a peer instead of an employee, and since then there has been no looking back for the comedy giant and performing on numerous television shows including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Make Me Laugh, Late Friday, The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, Comedy Central Presents and It’s Showtime at the Apollo.
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with one of the funniest guys on the planet to talk about the unique journey from doorman to Comedy Brand, what it was like to do comedy on one of NBC’s most popular shows and end up a runner-up only to follow up next season as the winner, some of his greatest moments as an entertainer, his motorcycle habit, and soo much more!! Such a great and funny guy, so enjoy Kade Nation!!
