If youve seen any of the great, African-American comedies of the past few decades, chances are youve seen John Witherspoon show up in at least one. He seems to be the go-to guy to play the stereotypical old and cranky black dad. Whether hes trying to coordinate his mushroom pants with his mushroom belt or telling you to put water on your cereal due to lack of milk, John Witherspoons spastic and speedy delivery has never made laughing at senior citizens so much fun. Its a trait thats especially applicable in South Florida, a place where we have a chance to laugh at them er, laugh with them, on a regular basis.
