The year 2018 was rough. If only I had known about the HEAVYWEIGHT LIGHTWEIGHT Stand Up Series with ALONZO BODDEN.

Initially, I met Alonzo’s stance in the early 2000s. I was a young mother, hardly grown, watching late-night adult TV via the Comedy zone and Alonzo was on. He was several years my senior, so I felt “cool” being able to vibe his well-thought-out shows. Thank God for LAST COMIC STANDING, it was the show that introduced me to the man who jokes about life despite her strifes. There’s nothing like overcoming the hill whilst you walk it. Right?

I fell in love with LCS. I was faithful to each season that Alonzo was on the bill, between the years 2004-2007. I lost contact with LCS at some point and thus lost comical contact with the majestic comedian until recently, when I dropped in on his Heavyweight Lightweight stand-up while stream/app surfing. I immediately fell back in love and married the work. I am so happy to find out that Alonzo has never stopped trying to reach me through laughter; his resume. Turns out, ‘the blessing of more streaming options had crowded out my usual route to enjoying him. Options are awesome and Amazon PRIME is the stream that linked us up, again. It went something like this:


Please believe me when I tell you that “it felt good” to laugh like that. Especially in the face of living out the topics. It’s a delicate walk, but Alonzo laughs in and at the current moment. The past is gone, and the good news is our future is not pre-determined. Perhaps laughing with Alonzo more often could help us all to not take life so seriously. What’s really “serious” is how much we all do have in common…

When Alonzo and I reconnected this weekend, I was on the verge of divorcing many issues in my life. I mean, I had my hand on the doorknob of mundane issues… then in came Lightweight Heavyweight and I remembered that “Life is a game that must be played,” (Fab5Freddy). After the broadcast, I kept my hand on the proverbial doorknob, but to secure it, instead of exiting. In retrospect, I thought about the things that I do love… This is important, since “Life (also) delves much hell to every human under its social spell,” (Qui).

As I took to IMDB and looked over Alonzo’s resume, I realized that he has been in many more scripted television series than I ever knew. Very impressive. So, he’s not just a Comic? Fortunately for the laugh-happy masses Alonzo has been two-timing Stand Up routines with Actor gigs the whole time, and somehow, I don’t care. I think it adds more dimension to his already majestic physical presence. Alonzo is not short of entertainment; therefore, I will spend my “honeymoon” catching up on Zo’s Actor/Writer/Producer moves. I am sure to be “at it” for hours. Oui!

Yep, I did it. I found my boo
in laughter at reality’s hue.

I married the resume and have committed to gloatin’  
about the well-crafted Stand-up Comedy of ALONZO BODDEN.

When joking in wisdom, he’s a Lightweight Heavyweight
I’m Qui
Consider me married to Comedy for at least the rest of the day.

Please join me in a winning week, love, laughter, and new memories all the more…
Good news from my digital vantage view: Life is not limited to any streaming score.
