Event Details:

You probably remember John Witherspoon as Ice Cube's (Craig's) outrageously funny, dog-catching dad in New Line Cinema's smash urban trilogy Friday, Next Friday & Friday After Next, or as "Pops" on the long-running syndicated sitcom "The Wayans Brothers" or as "Spoon" on NBC's "The Tracy Morgan Show." One thing's for sure, once you've seen Witherspoon you completely understand why he has earned the reputation as one of America's funniest dads.

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.

Not only does Witherspoon's work span over four decades to include blockbuster movies, hit television shows, commercials, and top-rated music videos, but he's coined his own catchphrases'as in "Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!" and "You Gotta Co-ordinate!"
