Sonya White is originally from Virginia, she has combined southern charm with big city street smarts to create a show that won her multiple appearances on CBS’s “Star Search” and a promo spot on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing 4”. Sonya has appeared on CMT’s comedy production “Southern Fried Chicks” which continues to tour live today. She has been featured on Comcast’s “Comedy Spotlight” and at “The U.S. Comedy Arts Festival 1999,” which aired on HBO, E, and Comedy Central.

Sonya has been cast in a Richard DeWitt Film “Into the Wilderness” as Pickle Annie a wisecracking farm lady during the Civil War. The production is presented by New Film Group, LLC to be released fall/winter 2020. Also, soon to be released is “Boot It Up!” Sonya’s Dry Bar Comedy Special produced by VIDANGEL Studios.

White’s observational comedy is enhanced by dead-on impersonations and appropriate sound effects. Her comedy show is based on real-life experiences and her fond-but irreverent-interactions with friends, family and the world at large. White’s television credits also include roles on the Fox Network’s “Nightshift,” The Family Channel’s sitcom “Big Brother Jake” and MTV’s national promotion “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 SAG/AFTRA member.
