You probably remember John Witherspoon as Ice Cube's outrageously funny, dog-catching father in the "Friday" movie trilogy, where the two were the only cast members to appear in all three movies, including "Next Friday" & "Friday After Next." You may also remember him as Pops on the long-running sitcom "The Wayans Brothers," or as Spoon on The Tracy Morgan Show on NBC. You might have also heard him as the voice of Robert "Granddad" Freeman on the hit animated series "The Boondocks." No matter how familiar you are with John, once you see him perform live you completely understand why he's has earned his reputation as one of the funniest dads in America.
John's scene-stealing roles in "Boomerang," "Little Nicky," "House Party," "Vampire in Brooklyn," and "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka," has established him as a Hollywood mainstay.
