Godfrey is one of the hottest comedians on the road today. His one man show, The Godfrey Complex, was a major hit at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal. GQ Magazine said that Godfrey "is set to be one of the biggest performers in the US in 12 months," following his run at the festival.
Godfrey has performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and recently starred in his own one-hour special for Comedy Central, Godfrey: Black By Accident. Godfrey recently recurred on FX's Louie and also played the lead in a pilot for that network called Bronx Warrants. He developed an animated pilot for FOX that was based on his comedy act, and can regularly be seen on Shaquille O’Neal’s Upload on TruTV. His feature credits include Zoolander, Soul Plane, and the upcoming indie Three Days in Vegas opposite Nic Cage.
