life in the slow lane
Slow down there Sparky. Maybe the time has come to stop and smell the laughter! At least that is the attitude of deadpan funny lady Sonya King. It is true that she is quiet, but her audience is not. They are too busy laughing! And you can hear that laughter in every corner of the country as Sonya makes her way from one coast to the other quietly making a big noise.
Originally from Selma, Alabama, Sonya grew up in sunny San Diego just one block from the beach. Combine those two worlds with a healthy dose of dry humor and what do you get? You get funny!
With encouragement from her husband, her two children and a supportive family, she entered a local comedy contest and that’s all it took – she was hooked! Starting in 1999 she began working her way across the nation toiling on the comedy club circuit while performing college dates and corporate events.
She has done voice over work, written for radio, and even has her own weekly radio segment for Cumulus Media. Sonya won the Carnival Cruise Competition which led to a great deal of work for various cruise lines. She can be seen in the independent film “Two Days Back”, and appeared on Good Morning America on ABC, but really stirred things up with her appearance on ABC’s The View with Barbara Walters and Joy Behar. That led to an appearance with Joy at famed Caroline’s Comedy Club in New York City.
This is a show you have to put on your must see list. Sonya is not just deadpan…she actually killed the pan!
