Description:

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.
 
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 including: The Comedy Cellar, the Comic Strip, Caroline's Comedy Club; and The Laugh Factory and The Improv in Los Angeles. Godfrey is fresh off filming his fourth appearance on BET's “Comicview,” a guest starring role on “30 Rock,” his own half-hour special for Comedy Central under his belt, and a recurring role on “Louie,” Godfrey is clearly on the verge of super-stardom.
