Henry Cho - his background in comedy
Henry Cho was born in 1962 and is of Korean descent. Although a native of East Tennessee, he was raised in West Haven Knoxville where he rarely encountered another Asian child until reaching high school. He recalls no discrimination, only a happy childhood and teenage years when he shone at football, basketball and baseball. Home today for Henry Cho is Nashville but he still maintains strong family links back in Tennessee, especially Maryville where his mother lives and where he earned money with a driving job while in college.
When he entered the world of stand-up humour in 1986 Henry Cho was still studying at the University of Texas in Knoxville but moved to Los Angeles in 1989 to follow his comedy career. Here he soon encountered comic giants like David Spade, Adam Sandler, Judd Apatow and Rob Scheider. Between them, they started a birthday tradition. Whenever it was time to celebrate one of their birthdays they headed to an open mic night in the comedy clubs that abounded in Los Angeles. A twist was added - they had to do each other's routines and not their own.
