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 a nomination as Campus Activities Magazine’s Best Female Performer and multiple appearances on CBS’ “Star Search.” She has also been featured on “Comcast Comedy Spotlight: Road Trip 2002” and at “The U.S. Comedy Arts Festival 1999,” which was aired on HBO, E, and Comedy Central.
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 “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 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.
