Sonya White, Comedienne
Sonya White is based in Chicago, IL. Originally from Virginia, she has combined southern charm with big city street smarts to create a show that won her multiple appearances on the CBS show Star Search and a promo spot on NBC's Last Comic Standing Four. Sonya co-starred in the CMT production Southern Fried Chicks, which was followed up with a 2007-2008 tour. She has appeared on Oxygen's Girls Behaving Badly, has been featured on Comcast Comedy Spotlight Roadtrip 2002, and performed at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival 1999, which has aired on HBO, E, and Comedy Central. She has also been honored by a nomination for Best Female Performer by Campus Activities Magazine.
White's observational comedy is enhanced by dead-on impersonations and appropriate sound effects. Both her comedy stage show and her one-woman show, Airing Dirty Laundry, are based on real-life experiences and her fond, but irreverent, interactions with friends, family and the world at large. White's television credits include roles on the Fox Network's Nightshift, the Family Channel's sitcom Big Brother Jake, and MTV's national promotion for Spring Break '98. She has played a colorful character on national promos for The Jerry Springer Show, and she has done cartoon impressions for The Cartoon Network's Pick Your Shorts. Sonya is a member of both the Screen Actor's Guild and The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists.
Sonya has played at comedy clubs all around the country, including The Comedy Store, The Improv, and The Icehouse in Los Angeles, Caroline's Comedy Club and Comic Strip in New York City, Zanies' in Nashville and Chicago, Chaplin's in Detroit, Laffs in Tucson and Albuquerque, Loonees in Colorado Springs, Comedy Corner in West Palm Beach, and many others. Among Sonya's numerous corporate clients are: the American Cancer Society, Avon, Best Buy, Buick, Chevrolet, the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Harley-Davidson, the International Firefighters Association, Midas, Mirro, the National Asphalt Paving Association (NAPA), the National Electricians Council Association (NECA), Nexus, Redkin, Rockwell Security Systems, NASA, Verizon Wireless, and the Vince Lombardi Charitable Fund.
