John Witherspoon of 'Friday' Posted YouTube Cooking Video a Day before His Death
John Witherspoon had the world laughing for most of his life, and even a day before his death, the famed comedian had fans rolling with laughter, thanks to a hilarious cooking video on YouTube.
Fans of Witherspoon have one more thing by which to remember the late legend. Before his death, the "Friday" star had a YouTube series called "Cooking For Poor People," and as with everything he did, the videos come packed with loads of comedy.
Witherspoon’s last entry, ironically, was on October 28 and featured him "cooking some delicious POOR MAN'S GUMBO."
Wearing a chef’s toque blanche and a yellow apron with his face on it, Witherspoon explained the difference between his dish and the rich man’s gumbo with "shrimp, lobster, and Alaskan King crab."
Witherspoon was set to reprise his iconic role as Willie Jones in "Last Friday," the proposed final installment in the Ice Cube-written film. According to CNN, Witherspoon also recently hinted at his return as Granddad.
In a comical yet ironic moment, Witherspoon went on to reveal that he bought one of his ingredients during a sale at the store. "There was a special on, so I bought all the flour I can use for the next 16 years," he joked.
"I know I haven’t been here for a while, but I’ve been busy doing other things. We about to do "The Boondocks," and we gonna do another [installment of] "Friday," so I’ve been around working on the road because I’ve been very, very busy and got a big schedule this year."

"John Witherspoon was one of the rare performers that was (sic) a father figure for the people he worked with and the people he entertained," comedian Roy Wood Jr. told The Undefeated. "Usually, only one of them is true."
