Mini Bio (1)

An accomplished character actor and comic, Kenny Alfonso was raised on baseball fields in Tampa, FL following his funny Dad and older brother Darren around while learning to hit the curveball. After 4 years of college baseball, the Austin Peay State University graduate spent 2 years in Law enforcement as an Investigator for the State Attorney's Office in Tampa, sold Life Insurance and Securities for 1 year and over 3 years as a Pharmaceutical Sales Rep, all by the age of 28. That same year, Alfonso was transferred to Atlanta and on a whim, pursued a childhood dream and began taking acting and improv classes. With early success on stage, in commercials and indie films, he threw a curveball of his own and suddenly left Big Pharma to become a full-time actor/comic/waiter. Alfonso is now a veteran performer with notable film credits including The Founder, Dopesick, Jerry and Marge Go Large, Ride Along, The Hot Flashes and Academy Award Winner Barry Levinson's The Bay, to name a few. He has guest-starred or played recurring characters in hit shows such as NCIS - New Orleans, The Resident, Creepshow, Hightown, Nashville, Prison Break and 6 seasons on Drop Dead Diva, among others. Alfonso was the Co-host of Barkitecture, a 'How To' show on the D.I.Y. Network and HGTV. As the official Barkitect, he built custom doghouses for rescued and adopted dogs and their new forever families. Alfonso's commercial credits are 70 plus and counting and he has performed on stage from coast-to-coast at comedy festivals and one-person shows such as Laffapalooza, the Aspen Comedy Festival and the Hollywood Ha Ha Festival. When time and schedules allow, Kenny continues to write and perform sketch comedy with his partner since 1999, actress Melissa Ponzio who he admits is much funnier.
