For Comedian Henry Cho, making the most of who he is has not been a problem. “I’m an Asian with a Southern accent”, remarks Cho. To a lot of people, that right there is funny”. Cho, who is Korean-American, was born in Knoxville, Tennessee.
In 1994 Henry got the call from NBC to host NBC’s Friday Night Videos, which he did weekly for two years. While in LA, Cho became a regular guest/comedian on such shows as The Tonight Show and The Arsenio Hall Show.
His TV credits also include guest roles on various sitcoms such as CBS’ Designing Women and The New WKRP in Cincinnati and a starring role in Fox’s TV movie, Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation.
Cho’s many comedy credits include NBC’s Bob Hope’s Young Comedians Special, MTV’s 1/2 Hour Comedy Hour, and on Comedy Central.
He has starred opposite Torn Arnold and David Allen Grier in Universal’s McHale’s Navy and the Farrelly Brothers’ movie Say it Isn’t So with Sally Field, Heather Graham and Chris Klein.
Cho recently performed for President George Bush and the First Lady at the 59th Annual Radio and Television Correspondence Dinner.
This holiday season, Cho will join Amy Grant and Vince Gill on their annual Christmas Tour.
