RIP John Witherspoon, a funny man who found laughs high and low

I interviewed him when one of his “Friday” comedies came out, a grand old man of comedy, even then.

John Witherspoon was a comic of the chitlin’ circuit era who found off color laughs in the stoner comedies of the recent past.

He was 77.
