Godfrey is one of the hottest comedians on the circuit. Growing up in Chicago, he constantly got in trouble for misbehaving and being an all-around class clown. Godfrey’s Nigerian parents unknowingly encouraged his bad behavior by showing him classic comedy films from an early age. While performing impressions of his college football teammates, Godfrey realized his irreverent style of comedy might be more than just a hobby.
As soon as Godfrey went pro, he immediately landed several high profile projects. Ben Stiller cast him to play himself in Zoolander, a performance that has since achieved cult status. Godfrey’s more recent film roles in Johnson Family Vacation, The Cook Out with Queen Latifah, Phat Girlz starring Monique, and Soul Plane, alongside Snoop Dogg. Godfrey is perhaps best known for his stint as the 7UP Guy in the beloved 7UP national campaign. Godfrey is fresh off filming his fourth appearance on BETs Comicview and a guest starring role on 30 Rock. He also has a recurring role on FXs hit show Louie.
In addition to his film and television work, Godfrey is one of the most dominant forces on the comedy scene where he is in demand both as a host and standup headliner at the most prominent comedy clubs across both coasts.
His talent has landed him a deal with Fox to develop an animated sitcom based on his life, and his one hour special Godfrey: Black By Accident premiered August 27th. Godfrey is clearly on the verge of super-stardom.
