About Alonzo Bodden
Alonzo is a major car guy, and a bona fide aviation mechanic. He got his first job working on planes with at the age of 18, and eventually worked on the B-2 Stealth Bomber. His first car was a 1967 Chevy Camaro with a 350-cu.in. V-8 and a Muncie four-speed.

He eventually placed as a runner-up in Season 2 of Last Comic Standing. He won the show’s grand prize in 2007. Since, he’s gone on to host Speed Channel’s 101 Cars You Must Drive and America’s Worst Driver on Travel Channel.
