Sonya White is based in Chicago. Originally from Virginia, she has combined southern charm with big city street smarts to create a show that won her multiple appearances on CBS’ “Star Search” and a promo spot on NBC’s Last Comic Standing 4. Sonya is one of four comediennes featured in the CMT broadcast production of “Southern Fried Chicks,” which was followed up with a DVD and annual tours.
She has been honored with a nomination in Campus Activities Magazine as Best Female Performer. Sonya has appeared on Oxygen’s “Girls Behaving Badly.” She has also been featured on “Comcast Comedy Spotlight Roadtrip 2002” and at “The US 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.
