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 catch phrases, as in Bang!Bang!Bang!Bang! and You Gotta Co-ordinate!
The Orange County Register describes the comedian/actor as being in a class of his own. "Witherspoon is one of those performers who doesn't need a funny line to be funny. Just standing there in a truculent posture with a suspicious look, he is funny and enlivens every scene he's in." The Detroit-bred comic has proven that he is a Hollywood mainstay and continues to land coveted spots in some of America's favorite movies and television shows. Witherspoon continues to tour around the country with his wildly popular stand-up show and recently launched The John Witherspoon Collection---a complete line of humorous greeting cards called Spoon Cards.
