John Henton/Kim Coles ~ Living Single Reunion

John Henton will never forget where it all started…on the road. John continues performing in clubs, writing new jokes, and traveling the country, but recently took a break to appear in a guest role on a “Hannah Montana” episode. Back in July of 2005, John performed at the Montreal International Comedy Festival – Just For Laughs. Initially scheduled for one performance at their “Uptown Comedy Show,” John had the audience in so much laughter, that he was asked to perform at the second show. John has also paired up with former “Living Single” co-star Kim Coles and together they have delighted audiences as well.

After having nine successful years on network television, John Henton established a name for himself as one of today’s leading comic talents. He is fortunate to be among an elite group of actors who found success on the small screen. He found a loyal and endearing following through the lovable and sensible character of “Overton Wakefield Jones” on the FOX hit sitcom “Living Single,” and the loyalty continued with fans embracing the character of “Milsap” on the sitcom, “The Hughleys.” For its third season, "The Hughleys" moved to UPN, and contributed to the network’s very successful Monday night line-up. "The Hughley's” wrapped its fourth and final season in spring 2002. John’s stellar television work has not gone unnoticed, as he was recognized in 2001 and 2002 with an NAACP Image Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

After taking his comedy on the road for a year and winning the 1991 Johnny Walker National Comedy Search, Henton was spotted by “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” comedy executive, the late Jim McCawley, who booked him for a performance on the show. As he finished his set, Henton looked to Carson for his approval and received much more. Henton was called over to take a seat on the coveted couch where Carson asked him if he had an agent. To Henton’s reply of “no,” Carson mugged, “Well, you will after tonight.” It was a performance that Henton says gave his career a “serious jump-start.”

Since then, Henton has made appearances on “The Arsenio Hall Show” and “Bob Hope’s Young Comedian’s Special” as well as returning to “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” In January 1993, Henton starred in his own half-hour comedy special for Showtime, “John Henton: Comedy With An Attitude." John performed on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” to an overwhelming audience response.

In April of 1993, Henton was cast in the FOX TV series “Living Single” starring Queen Latifah, Kim Fields and Kim Coles. The show received stellar ratings, and TV Guide selected Henton’s character as one of the “break out” characters of the 1993-fall season. When the show came to an end after five years, Henton was proud and pleased with the work he had done on the show. He continues to be a favorite on talk shows with appearances on “Weekends at the DL,” “Best Damn Sports Show” "The View," "Late Night With Conan O'Brien," "The Howie Mandel Show," "Roseanne," "Later," "Donny & Marie,” “Fox and Friends” and "Politically Incorrect."

Coles has appeared on many television shows, including Frasier ("Dr." Mary Thomas),[7] Six Feet Under, Celebrity Mole and The Geena Davis Show. Early in her career, she appeared as one of the hosts of It's Showtime at the Apollo. She was an original cast member on the sketch comedy series In Living Color that appeared on the FOX network. After leaving "In Living Color", she then got the role as Synclaire James on Living Single. She appeared as the mother of Spirit on UPN's One on One. Coles is a published author; her book is called I'm Free But It Will Cost You, ISBN 978-0-7868-8322-6, Hyperion Books, 1998.

Coles appeared on Celebrity Mole: Hawaii and was the first contestant to be eliminated. At the reunion of the show, she was one of two celebrities (the other was Michael Boatman) to correctly guess that Frederique van der Wal was the series' saboteur, Kathy Griffin was the winner, and Erik von Detten was the runner-up. Coles also joined other celebrities for a weight loss journey on the VH-1 reality show, Celebrity Fit Club. After 16 weeks, she lost a total of 24 lbs, and dropping nearly 4 percentage points in body fat, going from 34.7% to 31%. She accomplished this with the help of her team, "Ralphie's Angels". She lost 10.2% of her body weight, dropping down to 196 lbs.

Coles was a regular panelist on the 2000 revival of To Tell the Truth during its second season. She was also featured as a guest host on two episodes of The View. Coles was a co-host of the syndicated daytime television show In The Loop With iVillage alongside The Apprentice winner Bill Rancic and fellow season one contestant Ereka Vetrini. She has recently joined the cast of 10 Items or Less on TBS.

On September 30, 2009, she hosted the game show Pay It Off, lasted for one season on BET, which is similar to Debt. In 2010, she appeared on RuPaul's Drag Race. She appeared in an episode of TV One's series "Life After" in late 2011.
