4/15-17: John Witherspoon at the Improv

Posted By on Thu, Apr 8, 2010 at 3:50 PM

You probably know John Witherspoon’s face but not his name. He’s appeared in most of the Friday movies and was a regular on the Wayans brothers’ TV show. “I’ve had a lot of exposure in film and television, and a lot of fun,” he says. Like most stand-up comics, the 68-year-old Witherspoon began his career in clubs. He eventually graduated to supporting-actor roles. “I never had to be the star,” he says. “I just wanted to be part of the show. I never deluded myself into thinking I was on the edge of stardom.” Witherspoon performs at 8 tonight, and at 8 and 10:15 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday, at the Improv (2000 Sycamore St., 216.696.4677). Tickets: $22-$25. — Ed Condran
