Josh Alton is a rarity in the world of stand-up comedy: athlete-turned-comedian. Alton has became a regular performer at several Chicago comedy clubs including the Laugh Factory, the Improv, 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 corporate shows. His wife is a doctor so when he’s not touring he stays at home with his little girl. For this reason he is considered the ultimate trophy husband.
Remember the kid you picked on in High School? Well, he’s back and has a microphone. Josh takes a raw look at a timid life. He tells stories of a kid who did things a little differently, from cheerleading to living with his girlfriend. Josh will have you feeling bad for him but laughing the whole time. Josh has appeared in “Showtime Presents Pauly Shore’s Standing Alone”.
