Biography

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 7 UP 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 and a guest starring role on 30 ROCK. With his own half-hour special for Comedy Central under his belt, Godfrey is clearly on the verge of super-stardom. This summer Godfrey will be one of the few comedians appearing in all three comedy festivals: Montreal, Toronto, and Chicago.
