Allan Goodwin is one of the funniest and respected comics on the circuit today. Creative and loveable, Al can do any room anywhere, anytime. A comedy veteran of more than 15 years, Allan has worked in almost every area of the country on every level from corporations to house parties to bar mitzvahs. Al's strength comes from his ability to connect with people and appreciate the lighter side of their own lives thru his observations and material.
Allan was a winner on "America's Funniest People", has been seen on "The Billy Bush Show", numerous commercials on PBS and even an appearance on "The Bottom Line" with Qweisi Mfume. Having played almost every club and college in the country, Al recently made the step up to the theaters opening for Dave Chappelle, and for Wayne Brady and Steven Wright on their most recent tours. Another sign that Al is about to hit the big time was his recent admittance into New York's Friar's Club in recognition of his comedy achievements and dedication to his craft.
Al made it to the finals of last year's HBO "Lucky 21" Contest where he was one of only 21 comics from all over the country to get chosen and represent the East Coast last November at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival.
