Our Favorite Comedian is Back

Alonzo Bodden is the L.A. Press Club's go-to comedian.

His quicksilver wit and hilarious insight into the news has forced us to laugh at ourselves and our profession.

At previous SoCal Journalism Awards and National Arts & Entertainment Journalism Awards shows he has rocked the house and been praised by the likes of Quincy Jones and comedy legend Carl Reiner.

America knows Alonzo as the winner of season three of "Last Comic Standing." His career as both comedian and actor continues to soar.
