It feels like John Witherspoon rolls through Arlington on the reg, but that doesn't make his appearances in North Texas any less special. Props and thanks to the Improv for making it happen more often than we deserve. Witherspoon's performance in 'Friday' alone proves he's a national treasure, and his most recent work on 'Black Jesus' confirms it forever. Do yourself a favor and see him off the screen and on the stage.

Witherspoon has brought to life some of the most hilarious, unforgettable characters ever including, David Allen Grier's fashionably challenged, mushroom-wearing father in the romantic comedy Boomerang, and the quirky, diner-owning father "Pops" on The WB's "The Wayans Brothers." His scene-stealing roles in Boomerang, Little Nicky, House Party, Vampire in Brooklyn, and I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, made him one of the most memorable funny men in America.
