The Princess Theatre for the Performing Arts will present Henry Cho’s Funny but Clean Comedy Tour on Thur., Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m. The Professional Series event is being sponsored by Indorama Ventures and Lite 96.9 along with a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment of the Arts.

Cho, a Korean-American decent, was raised in Knoxville, Tenn. and got his start in stand up comedy in 1986. He attended the University of Tennessee and moved to Los Angeles in 1989 to pursue his career. He often uses his childhood experiences as an Asian American in the South in his comedy act. I’m an Asian with a southern accent,” remarks Cho, “To a lot of people, that right there is funny.”
