Mike Henry as Cleveland
Mike Henry grew up in the progressive metropolis called Richmond, VA, and attended Washington and Lee University, where he befriended enough fellow drunks to be elected class president for three years. After a brief stint in advertising, he realized there were too many people who could say "no" to producing his jokes about various body parts and/or emissions, so he moved to Los Angeles to find clarity and pursue comedy. He performed stand-up and improv, acted in commercials, attended Grateful Dead concerts and wrote, directed and starred in a series of comedy shorts before meeting his brother's friend and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) classmate, Seth MacFarlane. A couple years later, MacFarlane created FAMILY GUY and invited Henry to write gags and create characters for his new series.
Henry was a writer and producer on FAMILY GUY for the series' first six seasons. In the writers' room, he created many of the show's ancillary characters, for which he also does the voices, including "Cleveland," "Herbert," "Bruce," "Consuela" and the "Greased-Up Deaf Guy." Henry continues to voice his FAMILY GUY characters while running THE CLEVELAND SHOW with Rich Appel.
Henry's other acting credits include the hit feature comedy "Ted," a handful of other television series including AMERICAN DAD and "Robot Chicken" and the web-based series he created with brother Patrick, "Kicked in the Nuts."
Henry is married with two children and splits his time between Los Angeles and Richmond, VA.
Cleveland Brown grew up in Stoolbend, Virginia, and had moved to Quahog, Rhode Island. Finally getting tired of putting up with the antics of his friend Peter Griffin, Cleveland and his son, Cleveland, Jr., set off for California. Getting sidetracked, he stopped off in Stoolbend to show his son where he grew up. While there, Cleveland reconnected with his high school crush Donna Tubbs and decided to stay in town and marry his dream girl, gaining a stepson and stepdaughter in the process. Now Cleveland comes up with zany antics of his own, such as orchestrating a charity "Beer Walk," with his friends Lester Krinklesac, Tim the Bear, and his best friend from high school, Terry Kimple. Cleveland works with Terry as a cable repairman for Waterman Cable and coaches his old high school baseball team, the Stoolbend Growlers.
