Comedian Godfrey is probably as well known for his TV presenting skills and voiceover roles as he is for his stand up. From co-hosting the outdoor competition Bullseye on FOX to playing Kofi on the popular animated series Steven Universe, Godfrey is one busy man.

Born to Nigerian parents, Godfrey had a hard time convincing his friends he was a second-generation African. Even now it surprises people.

“They don’t believe me cuz I got clothes on,” he tells an audience. “When you say you’re African, people want that Discovery Channel African.”

Onstage his set is a mix of childhood recollections, current experiences and occasionally politics.

Once in a while he’ll pull out some impressions. “Whatever comes to mind,” he says.

7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday (July 5); 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday (July 6); 7 p.m. Sunday (July 7). $12-$45. Liberty Funny Bone, 7518 Bales St., Liberty Township, liberty.funnybone.com.
