Neko White may not be old enough to drink but he’s been working the comedy club circuit for years. The New York based comedian, actor and writer began his comedy career on the first day of high school -- telling jokes for his classmates in order to maintain the title of “funniest dude in school.” A year later, at the age of 15, Neko began working in clubs.
Now a full-time comedian, Neko has caught the attention of industry veterans who applaud his onstage presence, maturity and keen writing skills. In 2010 he was featured in “One Mic” a documentary about his life as a then high school senior and in demand comedian working in some of New York’s top comedy clubs.
Born in the Bronx, NY and raised in Harlem, Neko’s distinct voice, social commentary and ability to make fun of himself is what makes him endearing to audiences. He considers Martin Lawrence, Bernie Mac, Dave Chappelle, Joan Rivers and Don Rickles to be his biggest influences and aims to have a career as legendary as theirs.
Currently, Neko is the warm-up comedian and guest writer for MTV 2’s Hip Hop Squares. He’s gearing up to hit the road as part of the “Six Foot Nothing” comedy tour and performs in over 200 shows a year. To keep up to date on Neko follow him on Twitter @Neko_White93 or NekoWhite.com
