Spanky Brown joined me for a conversation on the Classic Hits 93.1 Comedy Couch prior to his recent shows at Side Splitters Comedy Club. I wanted to know how he got the name Spanky. He said it was a childhood nickname, inspired by the Our Gang character. His description of his other friends is very funny.
Spanky opened for Dave Chappelle’s bizarre Knoxville shows in June. We talked a little about that, in the context of different types of comics who get gigs based on their fame or their funniness.
