Spanky Brown & Todd Riley


A preacher’s son from Memphis, Tennessee, Spanky Brown has been making people laugh since his open mic debut in 1997. Brown has toured the world sharing his unique perspective and opinions on everything from politics and religion to race relations and relationships. He is seen regularly on BET’s Comic View and Comedy Central. Brown is a former contributing writer and frequent guest on nationally syndicated radio shows like The Tom Joyner Morning Show and The Bob and Tom Show.

Todd Riley joins us fresh off his appearance on Comedy Central’s Up Next Nationwide Comedy Competition. In just five years, Riley has toured nationally and landed gigs opening for Roy Wood Jr. (Sullivan & Son), Jon Reep (Eastbound & Down), Dov Davidoff (Chelsea Lately, Invincible), and others. Riley’s style features sardonic takes on daily life with an emphasis on dating and relationships. A crowd favorite and always happy to keep the party going, Riley elicits laughs long after the show ends.
