COMEDY | John Witherspoon 

It's not easy to play the comic relief opposite actors like Tracy Morgan and Eddie Murphy, but John Witherspoon has proven himself more than equal to the task. With roots in stand-up, Witherspoon has starred in films like the "Friday" trilogy, "Boomerang," and "Hollywood Shuffle," and racked up TV credits in "The Boondocks," "The Wayans Bros.," and "The Tracy Morgan Show." Most of his roles cast him as a father figure, but it's debatable if he ever approaches a good example — which is kind of the point.

John Witherspoon takes the stage this weekend at the Comedy Club, 2235 Empire Boulevard, Webster, for shows on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. $15-$25. thecomedyclub.us.
