When asked to describe his comedic style, Alonzo Bodden responds that its cynically good-naturedin an angry, suburban Negro kind of way. Intrigued? You should be. Boddens sharp, witty humor playfully dances on the line between I cant believe that asshole just said that and isnt he charming? Taking jabs at politics, sex and race (especially race), Bodden has a knack for lively, intelligent comedywhich helped him win the crown at Last Comic Standing Season 3 ; nab a couple of movie roles; and land a gig hosting the Travel Channels upcoming Streets of America: The Search for Americas Worst Driver , in which losing contestants have to watch as their car is destroyed. Now isnt that funny?
