COMEDY | Alonzo Bodden 

Before launching into stand-up comedy, and breaking out after performing at Montreal's Just for Laughs Comedy Festival and winning season three of "Last Comic Standing," Alonzo Bodden taught aircraft mechanics. The comedian studied aerospace in school and became a licensed aircraft mechanic — he has said that the comedy started when he tried to make his students laugh. If you look closely, the mechanical background can be seen in Bodden's stand-up: he approaches a topic with a level-headed logic, and many of his talking points revolve around the absurdity that occurs when society, our government, and justice system, loses its mind. NPR listeners will also recognize Bodden as a frequent panelist on the news quiz show "Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me!"

Alonzo Bodden will perform Thursday, November 6, though Saturday November 8, at The Comedy Club, 2235 Empire Boulevard, Webster. 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, $12; 7:30 and 10 p.m. on Friday, $15 per show; and 7:30 and 10 p.m. on Saturday, $20 per show. 671-9080; thecomedyclub.us; alonzobodden.com.
