Henry Cho Speaker Biography


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, TN and went into stand-up comedy in 1986 with the goal of getting into films. He moved to Southern California in 1989 to pursue his career, but always with the intent of returning to his roots in Tennessee. I planned to live in LA until I reached a level I was comfortable with and then get out of there, comments Cho.

In 1994, after he moved to a farm in the Nashville area, Cho got the call from NBC to host NBC’s Friday Night Videos which he did by commuting to LA 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 Lenny, 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 ½ Hour Comedy Hour, and VH-1’s Stand-up Spotlight.

The move back to his home state definitely did not hurt Cho’s career. Along with getting the Friday Night Video gig he as done two feature films and an independent. He has starred opposite Tom Arnold and David Allen Grier in Universal’s McHale’s Navy and has just finished the next Farrelly brothers’ movie Say It Isn’t So with Sally Field, Heather Graham and Chris Klein.

Cho now shares his home in Nashville with his wife and new baby boy. For now, when he is not with his family or engaged in his off-duty passion, golf, Cho chooses his jobs at his leisure. Only a project I’m passionate about will make me move back to LA, remarks Cho. I’d love to do a sitcom, had a couple chances a few years ago but couldn’t agree on the content. I’m not doing a stereotype Asian guy, period. Films work well for two reasons, one I love doing them, and two I can live where I want. I’m going to stay here in Nashville as long as I can. 901-754-9404.
