"Co-ordinate" a date to see John Witherspoon live in person. One of the nation's top stand-up headliners, he's also a popular actor, playing eccentric, short-tempered dads in the Friday series of films, as well as TV's The Wayans Brothers and The Boondocks. He's made more than a dozen appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman, and his TV credits range from The Richard Pryor Show in 1977 to Hill Street Blues, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and L.A. Law. Witherspoon's comedy draws from personal experience and observation, and is delivered in his unique and hilarious style. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Arnez J’s charisma and physical agility are unforgettable. His unparalleled form of physical comedy, strong on body language and animation, has been known to evoke standing ovations from crowds at the comedy clubs and concert halls he performs in across the country.
Arnez co-hosted BET’s signature stand-up comedy series Comic View between 2002 and 2003. Comedy Central premiered his half-hour comedy special Comedy Central Presents: Arnez J.
An audience favorite, his one-hour comedy special for BET, named one of the highest rated comedy specials on the network.
Arnez spent years working hard and dreaming of being a professional baseball player. He took a job working as a flight attendant between dreams and it was then that he realized he had the ability to keep the passengers and crew howling in their seats with his dead-on impressions. With some encouragement from friends, he made his first attempt at stand-up comedy. After that first night on stage, he knew what he wanted to do. He left his job with the airlines and made the decision to devote all of his time to a career in comedy. The Harlem Globetrotters took notice of Arnez’s very physical comedy routine at a local celebrity basketball game, and recruited the young comic. However, Arnez suffered a minor knee injury and it was then that he began seriously focusing on comedy, working the circuit in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. He quickly became one of the South’s funniest newcomers.
A finalist in the 1992 Bay Area Black Comedy Competition, Arnez was immediately noticed by the entertainment industry and was asked to make his first television appearance on Showtime’s “Comedy Club Network.” Numerous television appearances soon followed, including appearances on The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show, Louie Anderson’s Comedy Showcase, Comedy Central’s Make Me Laugh, NBC’s Friday Night Videos, Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam, his own BET Comic View Grandstand ½ Hour Special and many others. He hasn’t stopped since then. In keeping with his plan, Arnez keeps up a dizzying pace.
