Henry Cho

You may know comedian Henry Cho from his frequent guest spots on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson or his comedy DVD What's That Clickin’ Noise?. The Korean-American’s deep-fried Tennessee accent is guaranteed to elicit giggles as soon as he opens his mouth. "We were the only Asian people around there," he's said of growing up in Knoxville. "So I had no idea that I was supposed to be smart. My college friends were disappointed." He's also got plenty of thoughts on other subjects, like marriage. "They say you and your spouse should never go to bed mad. But sometimes...you just gotta sleep. The next morning, she'll still be mad, but you'll be rested." Cho says he hopes one day to win at least one argument with his wife. "I want my tombstone to say, 'He won one...and this was it.'" 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m. Sunday. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or www.improvhouston.com. $15 to $17.
