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. Godfrey has also made many television appearances including performing on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and recently starred in his own one hour special for Comedy Central, "Godfrey: Black By Accident.
