Godfrey

This comedian went from pitching sodas to selling out comedy clubs

Jerry Seinfeld’s sitcom run was over by the time he teamed up with Superman to sell credit cards. Dane Cook became a red-hot comedian before he started shilling for ESPN2. And Bill Cosby was already America’s dad when he started pitching pudding. But Godfrey has taken the backdoor approach, starring in a series of 7Up commercials (remember the “Up Yours” campaign?) before becoming a headlining stand-up comic. The Chicago-raised comedian, a fan of such tried-and-true territory as New York subways and white people attempting to play sports, utilizes the same mannerisms onstage as he does in ads: He’s energetic and jumpy, and he shouts every word he says.
