Alonzo Bodden, winner of Last Comic Standing is a very funny stand-up comic. Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time, on the ever dependable for great laughs and great sound quality Uproar label, is his first comedy CD and it is absolutely funny.
I first saw Alonzo Bodden at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival a couple of years ago, a long time before Last Comic Standing, it seemed like a good idea at the time When you go to five or six comedy shows in a week you appreciate each comic as he or she tells his funny stories and funny jokes but after a while you forget the names; Alonzo Bodden is a name I, and my date at the time, remember very well.
Another of the relationship comics who tells funny jokes and funny stories about dating, women, men, and relationships, Alonzo Bodden has his own, original, and funny take on things. He is probably right in the title track of this funny CD, Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time (which could be said about Last Comic Standing before it got cancelled) that life for guys would be a lot easier if, when asked to explain the funny accidents we get into, simply answered ” Seemed like a good idea at the time ” to justify their actions.
Alonzo Bodden knows what being single is and is very good at sharing his relationship experiences. He understand better than any other single guy I know what a woman means when she says “Just friends” and how a woman will mark her territory to claim a guy even if the guy is not aware of it. Alonzo Bodden is wise enough to have spotted the trick questions women ask men and, as a funny comedian, generous enough to share his funny answers with other hapless single guys.
Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time is a must have, very funny stand-up comedy CD. Like the vast majority of the very funny comedy released by Uproar records, Alonzo Bodden‘s Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time was produced by David Drozen so you know the quality is there in terms of sound.
