Kenny Zimlinghaus is a comedian from NYC who was born and raised as a fat kid on Long Island. He's been performing stand up comedy all around the country. Currently, Kenny can be heard every morning on "Wake Up" on Sirius XM's Cosmo Radio 109.
You probably remember John Witherspoon as Ice Cube's (Craig's) outrageously funny, dog-catching dad in New Line Cinema's smash urban trilogy Friday, Next Friday & Friday After Next, or as "Pops" on the long-running syndicated sitcom "The Wayans Brothers" or as Spoon on NBC's The Tracy Morgan Show. One thing's for sure, once you've seen Witherspoon you completely understand why he has earned the reputation as one of America's funniest dads.
His scene-stealing roles in Boomerang, Little Nicky, House Party, Vampire in Brooklyn, and I'm Gonna Git You Sucka, made him 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.
Brad Williams possesses something that everyone can agree is funny: a disability. Brad is a dwarf. He has appeared on numerous TV shows including Mind Of Mencia, Live at Gotham, the Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Pitboss. Brad has also performed for the troops all over the world because soldiers think dwarfs are funny too.
Brad was born and raised in Orange County, CA. He dropped out of college and started doing comedy at the age of 19. He toured as Carlos Mencia's opening act for 5 years. Brad's big break came when he would appear in numerous sketches on Comedy Central's Mind Of Mencia TV show. Brad's memorable roles on the show include playing a whore dwarf (whorf), the leader of an all dwarf basketball team, joining Mencia at a Renaissance faire, and giving a speech about his hatred of podiums.
Brad's show is high energy. Robin Williams called him "Prozac with a head." Brad's ability to make humorous observations on disability, relationships, sex, and race are winning over audiences and proving that anyone can overcome their shortcomings.
