About
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:

We hired Josh for a company Christmas party, with 175 people. He did a fantastic job, funny yet professional. He came early and ate dinner with us, got to know a few folks and even stayed after the show. He inquired about attire for the evening before the event and even mingled with people before the show. Wonderful job! We would hire Josh again for sure..

He had a great show, he did research on our areas, he kept in great contact with me the entire time. He let us use his sound system for our presentation. He kept people laughing!! Very nice. He had everyone laughing the whole time, yet he kept it clean. A favorite thing we all need is comedy!! Absolutely AMAZING, loved it. He was fantastic! Josh really made his act specific to our rural area! As a mother of 2 kiddos I could really relate to the stories about his kids. My facial muscles were sore the next day from laughing so hard! One of the best ever My cheeks were hurting Thanks for coming to small town Nebraska!!!

From the time Josh entered the building, he had people laughing! He was SO easy to work with and really helped make our event awesome! Unknown to me, he took the time to do a little research about the area and even made a couple jokes about surrounding towns. As our guests were leaving, I kept hearing people talk about how fun the evening was and how much they laughed. Small towns like Chariton don't get a lot of dinner and entertainment style events and Josh definitely made ours one to remember!

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! ;)

Our holiday party experience with Josh was wonderful. We have a wide age range in our office and he was able to get a laugh out of everyone. Would definitely recommend him for other events and would go to see him in a comedy club setting.
