Godfrey Biography

Godfrey is one of the hottest young comedians on the horizon. In fact, Ben Stiller cast him to play himself in Zoolander, a performance that has since achieved cult status. His more recent film roles in Johnson Family Vacation, MGM's Soul Plane, The Cook Out starring Queen Latifah, and Phat Girlz starring Mo'Nique highlight his comedic range. Other works include Virginia, costarring with Parker McKenna Posey of the Damon Wayans ABC series My Wife and Kids and Short Fuse.

Godfrey is best known as the national spokesman for the 7UP campaign, bringing his comedic portrayal as the 7UP guy in the national 7UP commercials. He’s had several appearances on BET's Comicview, Last Call with Carson Daly, and has landed his own half-hour comedy special for Comedy Central.

It was in Bravo's reality show called The It Factor that the start of Godfrey's career was documented. It was the story of nine people, who have what it takes to make it big in the entertainment industry, and Godfrey was the only stand up comic in the documentary.

Currently you can catch Godfrey as a talking head commentator on VH1 and BET. He has also appeared on Showbiz Tonight on CNN and Chelsea Lately. He is currently the voice of Mr. Stubborn on The Mr. Men Show on Cartoon Network.

Godfrey jokes, Quotes and One Liners

My black friends in America don't believe me. I said, 'Dude, I'm Nigerian American.' 'Word? We thought you were, like, regular black.' What the hell is 'regular black'? Crayola coming out with colors I don't know about?

The weatherman gets to curse in Chicago -- it's license, it's a law, I'm serious. 'What's the five day outlook? Holy shit. It's cold as fuck out, that's what it is.' And there's a picture of a snowman with his middle finger up.

You ever pull out money too big in front of a homeless dude? You're like, 'Let me give you some -- oh, shit.' He like, 'Give me that $100.' 'No, here's some pennies.'

The X-Games -- I watch that; I'm not impressed. That's white dudes' desperation. They're running out of sports. They gotta find something that black dudes won't touch.

You know what the bodega is? It's the little Latin store, and they try to act like it's a grocery store. It has two aisles. And the guy, he always tries to help me, 'You looking for the bread?' I was like, 'Dude, I can see it right here, alright.' He's like, 'Hey, hey, it's in aisle two.' That's all you got, what are you talking about?
