Henry Welch

H Welch1 (1)Comedian Henry Welch, considers himself the most feared man in comedy! His career began at the prestigious A.H. Packer High School and on to Alabama State University pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology.

When Henry started comedy, Bruce Ayers, owner of the Stardome Comedy Club in Birmingham, AL. told him “if you can do clean comedy, it will send you anywhere” and the rest is history. Henry has traveled all over the world telling jokes on TV/Radio stations at colleges, churches and clubs.

Welch has just filmed the movie, Strip Off. He appeared in an OutKast music video and can be heard in hilarious skits featured on Idlewild and Speaker Boxxx.

He has been a part of BET’s Comic View, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and Showtime’s The Big Black Comedy Show.

Now hailing from Atlanta, GA, Welch punctuates his jokes with unique phrases, “Y’all ain’t ready for me!” and “I’m booked!”

A G White

Born and raised in East New York, one of Brooklyn’s toughest neighborhoods, A.G. is sure to give all of his audiences a real “taste of comedy with a different flavor…”

After getting positive feedback for performances at several Brooklyn nightspots, A.G. took his act to Harlem where he performed at the renowned Uptown Comedy Club. He passed their “New Jack” segment, was asked to return as a regular and later received his first national broadcast opportunity on their newly televised show, The Uptown Comedy Club. Through stand-up routines airing nationally on FOX and in syndication, A.G.’s unique style gained familiarity throughout the comedy arena. Emphatically accepted by New York audiences, talent agents suddenly received word of A.G. White. They observed and enjoyed several of his performances then asked him to perform at the prestigious Apollo Theater in Harlem; leading to his TV performance on It’s Showtime at the Apollo. He was featured as the guest comedian and soon after, performed on the Apollo Comedy Hour. His presentation was so well received that entertainment officials called him to perform as a featured comedian at the Tribute to Robin Harris, held at the Apollo Theater.

Since then, A.G. hosted and performed internationally at various venues including comedy clubs, event spaces and colleges. He broadened his diverse comedic style to reaching audiences such as that for BET’s Comicview and even began producing live stand-up comedy events at National Amusements Multiplex & Showcase Cinemas. A.G.’s stand-up comedy extends to charitable functions including Comic Relief IV, a fundraiser for homeless people.
