Josh Alton is a rarity in the world of stand-up comedy: He’s an athlete-turned-comedian. After playing his final collegiate football game, Alton hung up his cleats and shoulder pads for a microphone and a note pad and began doing stand up comedy. He moved from Des Moines, Iowa to Chicago where he studied improv at the famous Second City Theater and continued doing stand up. Eventually Alton became a regular performer at several Chicago comedy clubs including, the Improv, the Laugh Factory, and Riddles Comedy Club. Alton was also featured in the stand up comedy documentaries, “Road Dogs” and “American Smartass” and once did a commercial for the AMC Channel. Now he lives back in Des Moines and tours all over the country, headlining comedy clubs and private events. Alton married the love of his life, and has 2 daughters with her. His wife is a doctor so when he’s not touring he stays at home with his girls. For this reason Alton is considered the ultimate “trophy husband”.
From sold out theaters and comedy clubs to private corporate luncheons and family birthday parties, Bobby has been performing as a professional stand-up comedian since 2010. His ability to adjust his comedy style and material to fit any audience makes him the perfect choice for your next event. His material revolves around his life, his time in the Air Force and everyday observations that leave crowds of all kinds laughing. He’s opened for acts such as Todd Barry (Comedy Central, Louie, The Wrestler), Janeane Garafalo (Mystery Men, The Larry Sanders Show, HBO), Emmy Award winner Tig Notaro and Last Comic Standing Winner Josh Blue.
