Godfrey | Goodnights Comedy Club | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Nov. 29-30, 8 & 10:15 p.m. 2013
Price: $20-120
Comedian Godfrey's best work isn't his 2011 stand-up special Black by Accident or his performance as the Nigerian co-pilot in Soul Plane or even his brief stint as "the 7 Up Guy" from the 7 Up commercials. It's his turn as Ty Bowman, the exercise trainer who gets white girls in shape by chasing them around and scaring the shit out of them in the Funny or Die short "White Women's Workout." It's a fitting example of how this veteran of the New York comedy scene can spin comic gold out of absurd, race-based observational humor. See if he'll scare more white chicks during this two-night stint. —Craig D. Lindsey
