“Watch Out Deh Now” is more than a heed to action, it’s the trademark catcall for funnyman J. Anthony Brown. He one of the voices that wakes you up weekday morning on the nationally syndicated Tom Joyner Morning Show for over ten years now. Whether he’s murdering the hits with his parodies of well-known songs, or donning a pink pimp suit to evoke a laugh, Brown will get to your funny bone. “A lot of comics just do stand-up. But stand up is just one of the many facets of comedy. In his act, he rides the spectrum of funny. I’ll sing, incorporate skits and vignettes, do costume changes, and still tell you a joke,” reveals Brown.
