Godfrey is one of the hottest young comedians on the horizon. In fact, Ben Stiller cast him to play himself in Zoolander, a performance that has since achieved cult status. His more recent film roles in Johnson Family Vacation, MGM's Soul Plane, The Cook Out starring Queen Latifah, and Phat Girlz starring Mo'Nique highlight his comedic range. Other works include Virginia, costarring with Parker McKenna Posey of the Damon Wayans ABC series My Wife and Kids and Short Fuse.
Godfrey is best known as the national spokesman for the 7UP campaign, bringing his comedic portrayal as the 7UP guy in the national 7UP commercials. He’s had several appearances on BET's Comicview, Last Call with Carson Daly, and has landed his own half-hour comedy special for Comedy Central.
It was in Bravo's reality show called The It Factor that the start of Godfrey's career was documented. It was the story of nine people, who have what it takes to make it big in the entertainment industry, and Godfrey was the only stand up comic in the documentary.
Currently you can catch Godfrey as a talking head commentator on VH1 and BET. He has also appeared on Showbiz Tonight on CNN and Chelsea Lately. He is currently the voice of Mr. Stubborn on The Mr. Men Show on Cartoon Network. Godfrey can regularly be seen performing in the hottest comedy clubs in New York and Los Angeles, and can be seen performing around the country and overseas.
