Last night, one of Jay’s guests was stand-up comic Alonzo Bodden. I have to admit, not being a regular watcher of Last Comic Standing (which Bodden competed in twice, first achieving runner-up status and then winner in 2007), I was unfamiliar with Bodden’s work. But funny is funny. Check him out:
I like Bodden’s riffs on news-media scare tactics, and his confidence in making a reference to a California highway number that much of the rest of the country will only get in context (“They’ve been trying to build a car-pool lane on the 405 for 30 years”).
Not revolutionary stuff, but who needs a revolution all the time? A good, solid performance from a smart, likable guy.
