"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

Went in with no expectations. I hardly watched MAD TV, but I have always thought Bobby Lee played hilarious minor roles on random comedies. He definitely delivered a great standup, held his own, and kept the crowd wanting more of him by not limiting himself to certain types of jokes. By the end, I was wishing he had some DVDs for sale so I could continue the laughter at home. I will definitely be on the lookout for his next performance.

Bobby Lee, best known from his numerous years as a cast member on Madtv, can now be seen as a regular guest on E!’s “Chelsea Lately” and has been touring the country year?round with his hilariously unpredictable stand-up.
A native of San Diego, CA, Lee was expected to follow in his father’s footsteps, running the family clothing store. After stints in a local rock band and at the local community college, he was spotted by Frank Burns, the legendary manager of La Jolla’s Comedy Store. In 1995, Pauly Shore spotted Lee on stage and asked the young comedian to open for him in Las Vegas. It was at that point that Lee met Shore’s mother, the celebrated owner of the Comedy Store, Mitzi Shore. Lee became a regular at the club, and also went on the road with the comic Carlos Mencia. Bobby went on to gain success from there, including landing a cast role on MADtv.
Joining the show in 1999, Bobby quickly became an audience favorite on the longrunning sketch show, which in total aired for 14 seasons on Fox. Bobby became known for his unique brand of pain?inducing, physical humor. He created such memorable original characters as the comically confused film critic Johnny Gan, the world’s worst interpreter Bae Sung, and hapless warrior Blind Kung Fu Master. And audiences have loved his takes on such real-world figures as Connie Chung and North Korean President Kim Jong Il.
