"What's That Clickin' Noise?"

Henry Cho Tells All in New Comedy Central Special, CD and DVD

NASHVILLE, TN -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 6, 2006 -- Henry Cho, the quick-witted Korean comic with the slow-burning Southern accent, will soon be all over the map via a Comedy Central special on July 14 and the release of his first album and DVD on July 18. Each of these projects is titled: "Henry Cho: What's That Clickin' Noise?"

Filmed and recorded at the Tennessee Theatre in Knoxville -- Cho's hometown -- the special showcases the comedian's genius for transforming real-life incidents into sidesplitting stories. And, unlike most other comics, Cho specializes in family-friendly routines. "I haven't cursed on stage in 20 years," he proclaims proudly. "Not once. There's never been a need to. I could do my show in a church. The stories are funny, but the language is clean."

Until this special came around, Cho had resisted persistent requests to record an album, preferring to be seen in action rather than simply heard. But it soon became apparent to him that the special would translate perfectly into a CD and DVD. "I'm not doing anything different," Cho stresses. "So I decided, 'Why not?'"

The CD and DVD will be released on Warner Bros./Jack Records, the home of fellow funnymen Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry The Cable Guy. Indeed, these three jokesters show up at the beginning of Cho's DVD -- as cartoon characters.

"I'm full-blooded Korean," Cho says when he introduces himself to his audiences. "I was born and raised in Knoxville, Tennessee. So I'm South Korean."
