Live performances are returning to the Edna Boykin Cultural Center April 8 after a year of COVID-19 restrictions. Wilson Arts and Boykin Series 24 will bring comedian Henry Cho to the stage.

Cho, best known for his “clean comedy,” has been entertaining audiences on stage, screen and radio for many years. His TV credits include appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “The Late, Late, Show” and “Young Comedians Special.” He also served two years as the host of NBC’s Friday Night Videos and has had many guest roles on a variety of network sitcoms.

Cho was co-creator, co-producer and co-writer of “The Henry Cho Show” on GAC and his Comedy Central Special “What’s That Clickin’ Noise?” is currently streaming on Netflix. Henry can also be heard daily on Sirius, XM, Blue Collar Radio and Pandora, and he is a regular performer at the Grand Ole Opry.

Some of Henry’s film credits include Universal’s “McHale’s Navy,” “Say It Isn’t So” and “Material Girls.” He has worked extensively with Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire and many others.

In 2019 he completed filming the Hallmark movie “The Farmer and the Belle: Saving Santaland” and shot the TV pilot “Double Occupancy” and the film “Cheyenne.”


Due to COVID-19 restrictions currently in place, the Boykin Center is limited to an audience of 180 patrons for this family-friendly comedy show and will be seating people according to the current “social distance” guidelines in place on the performance date.

Reserve seating will not be available for this show, and all tickets will need to be purchased through the Wilson Arts box office at the Boykin Center. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults and $30 for students and senior citizens.

Stop by during regular business hours (10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday) or call Wilson Arts at 252-291-4329 to purchase tickets.

Appropriate face masks/shields must be worn while on the premises, including during the performance, and temperatures will be taken at the door upon entry.
