George Willborn, comedy’s “Stress Reliever,” is a stand-up comic and a radio personality who hails from Chicago, IL. He was born on the west side of Chicago at Cook County Hospital, but was raised on the south side at 66th and Ingleside. He attended Alexander Dumas grammar school, the same school as Mae Jemison. He first stepped on stage in 1987, and his straight-forward comedic style has won him legions of fans worldwide.
Whether he’s on stage, television or radio, he keeps the audience entertained and full of laughter. He achieved great recognition as the winner of Bill Belamy’s show, Who Got Jokes, as well as hosting Family Reunion and co-hosting Baisden After Dark. More recently, he was co-host of the nationally- syndicated The Michael Baisden Show. Unfortunately, that show ended in March of 2013, after Baisden and his radio syndicator, Cumulus Media Networks, reportedly had a major falling out.
Currently, he is the co-host of The Doug Banks Radio Show with Doug Banks and local hometown favorite Dee Dee Renee! He also has his own radio program Willborn’s World on WHUR’s Sirius XM, Channel 141, H.U.R. Voices. He not only writes comedy for himself, he’s also written for the Oscar-winning comedian Mo’Nique.
