Beginings

EARLY LIFE

Cody Easterbrook began entertaining audiences at a very young age. After some coaxing, he was given his first camera by his parents when he was only 12 years old. As a boy he pioneered his own special effects and camera tricks with the home video camera and by middle school, Cody was producing imaginative short films with such titles as, ‘The Alien Hand,’ ‘Detective Fatso’ and ‘The Madagascar Monkey.’  As an adolescent, he possessed the rare ability to rope his neighborhood peers into costarring in his projects and organized large groups of friends to assist him in his creative vision. 

 

By high school, it was no surprise that Cody was hosting a daily cable show on the Mustang Cable Network. He filed superfluous reports with an uncanny knack for humor, wit and parody that earned him the Eubie Jr Award for excellence in broadcasting and reporting from Sam Houston State University. Being on-screen however, wasn’t the only place he found his success.

 

Cody served as his High school Drama Club President and brought to life many beloved characters. He took on the roles of Odysseus in Homer’s ‘the Odyssey,’ Orsino in Shakespeare's  ‘The Twelfth Night,’ and he proved he had a brain as the Scarecrow in ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ Cody kept audiences laughing with his sketch comedy skills and quick-thinking wit as a member of  the prestigious improv troupe, ‘Comedy Cabaret.’ Cody was honored to be awarded as best actor, all star cast, and even received a scholarship for his comedic performances in the musical ‘Crazy for You.’

  Growing up, Cody was always a character - quite literally.

Cody holds a deep connection to his multicultural heritage which includes oceania. As he earned a B.A. degree in International Culture Studies & Communications from BYU-Hawaii, he began working as an entertainer at the renowned Polynesian Cultural Center.

 

He wowed audiences as a hula dancer, a Polynesian performer and an energetic Lu’au emcee, performing for thousands daily at Hawaii’s number one visitor attraction. His love of people, and infectious energy made him an instant hit with audiences. 

 

With his inviting smile and charismatic persona, he charmed hundreds nightly with impromptu performances. His quick wit and timing and natural ability to engage a crowd with participation quickly made him a master showman.

 

His time in the spotlight prepared him for a life on stage and in front of countless audiences. Cody has hosted private events for Disney, Boeing, and Toyota just to name a few.

 

Today Cody still takes to the stage hosting an array of events, from award and fashion shows to performing stand-up for the troops, and he still manages to host an occasional Lu’au from time to time as well.
