This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with comedian Henry Cho, who will be performing at the South Point Casino Friday and Saturday, May 13 and 14 at 7:30. In this episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Henry talks about how he discovered he was unique as a comedian, growing up of Korean descent in Knoxville, Tennessee; why he took ten years off from his comedy career; how you can be funny without being neurotic; why his disability insurance is so high (as it is for other comedians); how he ended up performing at the Grand Ole Opry; why he’s never been a worrier; and why he can work anywhere because of the type of comedy he performs.
Henry Cho’s credits include appearances on NBC’s The Tonight Show, CBS’s The Late, Late, Show, and NBC’s Young Comedians Special. He served two years as host of NBC’s Friday Night Videos and had many guest roles on various network sitcoms. Henry was co-creator, co- producer and co-writer of “The Henry Cho Show” on GAC.
Henry filmed the Faith-based Indy film “Saving Faith” in which he co-starred and also co-producer (released by Lions Gate). Henry has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Feature Film by the International Christian Film Festival. He recently completed filming a Hallmark movie “The Farmer and the Belle- Saving Santaland. “
