Comedy tonight

BEST BETS

April 03, 1997|By Gretchen V. Porter

Stand-up comedian and actor John Witherspoon will perform at Washington's Improv Comedy Theater today through Sunday. Witherspoon, who co-starred with Eddie Murphy in the film "Vampire in Brooklyn," has proved to be a natural at ad-libbing. Aside from roles in "House Party" and "I'm Gonna Get You Sucka," Witherspoon also co-starred in Robert Townsend's "Hollywood Shuffle," which had no script!

He also appears as "Pops" on WB Network's "Wayans Brothers."

The performances will run at 8:30 p.m. today and Sunday (tickets $17), 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday (tickets $20). The Improv Comedy Theater is at 1140 Connecticut Ave. N.W., Washington. For more information, call 202-296-7008.
