hilarious stories, and they’re headed your way. When “Froe and Cho Bring the Show,” you can count on a no
holds barred outlook on life’s hilarious and sometimes, downright unbelievably crazy moments.

Anita Renfroe debuted with her own 3-minute rendition of the William Tell Overture titled “Momisms.” This
highly celebrated video, summing up all those things a mother says to her children, rapidly acquired an
overwhelming 10 MILLION YouTube views catapulting Anita to countless mainstream media stops including
ABC’s Good Morning America, CNBC, Fox and Friends, Dr. Phil, and more. Renfro’s other credits include an

Henry Cho, the quick-witted Tennessean-Korean comic with a slow-burning Southern accent, made his splash
into the scene via Comedy Central. This special was filmed in his southern hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee.
Being a full-blooded Korean, Cho refers to himself as… well… “South Korean.” Henry’s TV and film credits
include appearances on NBC’s The Tonight Show, CBS’s The Late, Late, Show, and countless others. He served
two years as host of NBC’s Friday Night Videos and has made numerous guest appearances on various
network sitcoms. Cho’s own GAC sitcom, “The Henry Cho Show” debuted in the Fall of 2011. He can also be
heard daily on Sirius/XM and Blue Collar Radio.

“Froe and Cho” will be bringing their side-splitting family friendly comedy to Peoria Civic Center in Peoria, IL
on Thursday, May 9, 2013 at 7:00 PM.
