A versatile comic who is perfect for any type of party or corporate event!!
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 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. Alton married the love of his life, and has a daughter with her. His wife is a doctor so when he's not touring he stays at home with his little girl. For this reason Alton is considered the ultimate “trophy husband”. You can read all about his adventures on the road and at home with his daughter on the Trophy Husband Blog which is located on Alton's website:

Our holiday parties needed revamped. Josh is just what we needed to do that. He came in and was so easy to get along with and really grasped the personalities that were in the room. Everyone was laughing. Some even cried. I would recommend Josh to anyone looking for a laugh. Can't wait to do this again next year! ;)

Josh performed at our department holiday party. He did a great job. He had us in tears at one point. He engaged the crowd and that created a lot of laughs. I asked him to keep it fairly clean given that it was a corporate holiday party and he did a good job without crossing the line. I'd recommend him for your Corporate or Work holiday party.

Josh's performance at our small company holiday party was a success! Even though our group was small, Josh performed just as though he was in a large comedy club. His interaction with the audience was equally as entertaining as his sets, and his ability to find topics that everyone can relate to was great. Highly recommend.
