Winston Hodges

Winston Hodges

Winston Hodges is from a small town called Farmville (at least that is what he tells people, he is actually from a town so small he would know if you were from it!) in rural Virginia. He has spent his time working comedy clubs with his southern charm and edgy wit. His first time performing he won the competition at the Richmond Funny Bone’s Clash Of Comics, and he has never looked back. You can hear him discussing growing up in a Christian home and working with children who have special needs all while providing a fun and energetic take on all the things we want to say but never do.
