"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
Patrice got his first real taste of stand-up at a place called Estelle’s in Boston. He was heckling a comic, and the comic suggested maybe Patrice thought he could do better. Patrice did and the following week he went on stage at Estelle’s and brought down the house. From there he went on to work at the Comedy Connection, then moved to working at most of the clubs in and around Boston, New England, and New York. Now, years later, Patrice has a wide range of comic tools.
Asked to whom he aspires, Patrice mentions only two names: George Carlin and Richard Pryor. Carlin for his distinct point of view and universal appeal; Pryor for his honesty, vulnerability and personal revelation. Patrice has appeared on “The Late Show with Conan O’Brien” three times and was a regular on the very popular Comedy Central show “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn”. He has also performed stand-up at both the prestigious Montreal Just For Laughs and the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen. Additionally Patrice has guest starred on numerous television shows including FOX’s critically acclaimed “Arrested Development” and NBC’s “The Office”. He was also a series regular on FOX’s drama, “The Jury”.
You can hear him voicing the animated shows “Shorties Watchin’ Shorties” on Comedy Central and “O’Grady High” on “Noggin”. Catch Patrice in the films “The 25th Hour” directed by Spike Lee, “In The Cut” with Meg Ryan and “Head Of State” with Chris Rock.
Patrice has also performed half hour specials on both Showtime and Comedy Central. Be sure to check out Patrice in his own HBO “One Night Stand” half hour special.
