"I started working on Monday and I dropped out of college on Friday," Cho said.

Six months later, Cho was picked as Jerry Seinfeld's opening act when the original performer couldn't make it. Cho was the only clean comedian in the region that anyone had heard of, so he got the spot. Seinfeld liked him so much that he took him on tour afterwards. From then on the "Henry Cho Funny But Clean Comedy Tour" began to formulate and is currently making its rounds.

Being clean is just part of who Cho is. "I learned that it doesn't split my crowd (to be clean), because even if you're the biggest fan of dirty comedy, you'll still laugh at my stuff," said Cho.
