*An incredible memorial-going home service for funnyman John Witherspoon is going on right now at Forest Lawn in the Hollywood Hills.
We were able to get our hands on the program for the event and saw that among others, one of the guest speakers is non-other than David Letterman. It seems the late Mr. Witherspoon and Letterman were real-life best friends! Wow, who knew?
Also scheduled to speak and or perform at this afternoon’s services are Cedric the Entertainer, Shanice, Bill Bellamy, Shawn Wayans, Howard Hewett, George Wallace, Regina King (via video), Jeffrey Osborne, Ice Cube and more.
Witherspoon left this world on October 29, 2019. He was 77. Check out a snippet of the bio from the Celebration of Life program:
