Starting his comedy career in late November 1997 on Open Mic Night at the Comedy House Theatre in Savannah, Georgia, Spanky Brown has been leaving audiences reeling with laughter ever since. Spanky has toured the world sharing his unique perspective and opinions on everything from his life, politics and religion, race relations and relationships. Versatility and style best describe this veteran performer who provides comedic insights that transcend all barriers, age, gender, urban or mainstream. Crowds are no obstacle for this entertainer . His personal account of triumphs and tragedies and unbridled opinions are for all those who really try to "keep it real ". His experiences as a "Preacher’s Son" (even God knows he’s funny), as an advertising executive, car salesman, insurance salesman, radio personality, father, step-father, being married, divorced, married and divorced…again ( you do the math ) even served time … in the army that is, and his honesty about it is what makes him such an endearing character as much as his willingness to let you in so you can see that truly "it could be worse". Spanky is a 16-year veteran of the comedy stage. He tours nationally on a consistent basis and is one of the most requested return comedians in comedy clubs around the United States. The small screen loves Spanky. He is seen regularly on B.E.T’s Comic View and Comedy Central. Spanky has been featured on Discovery I.D. and the Speed Network. He is also the former host of "Barbershop Critics" on The Black Family Channel. Spanky’s real life comedy style shines on radio. He is a former contributing writer and frequent guest on National Syndicated shows like "The Tom Joyner Morning Show" and "The Bob and Tom Radio Show", respectively. His standup is played frequently on XM / Sirius Satellite radio and NOW, the next phase of his WORLD DOMINATION (or, in other words…SPANK-APOCALYPSE!!!).
Opening Act: Mary Asher
Adopted at 3 days old into a skinny family this chubby little girl developed a sense of humor at a very early age. It would serve her well as she ventured out into the world. Her comedy debut came in 1993 at a talent show for a company picnic. With over 700 hundred people in the audience, she nearly passed out from the fear and excitement. She plowed through her five minute skit in just over 50 seconds. Even though she had rushed through her material like an auctioneer who needs to go to the restroom – the experience planted the comedy bug in her in a BIG way. She’d been told for most of her life that she should be a comic, however coming from a blue collar family, it never occurred to her that it might lead to a new profession. She appeared on Comedy Centrals Roast of Flavor Flav, and has performed at major clubs, professional conferences, colleges and for the troops .
