Have you heard of Whitney B? Frederick comedian Whitney talks to OUT40 about her start in comedy and her kind of funny. Check it out! 

1. Why comedy?

Why comedy? I’ve always loved everything about Comedy. Making people laugh has been a passion I’ve had since elementary school. I was always the class clown and loved to make a classroom seem cool even though my teachers weren’t having it.

2. How long have you been a comedian?

I don’t know if I would necessarily call myself a comedian. Very goofy, yes. Since 5th grade my friends would always say, “Oh my God, Whitney is so goofy and crazy.” It wasn’t until maybe 3 years ago that I decided to share that goofiness with the world.

3. Which famous comedian would you compare yourself to?

Oh man. It’s crazy because a lot of people think that she’s new onto the scene but she’s been around for awhile now. I would say Tiffany Haddish (loveeeee her) and maybe Martin Lawrence in a way because I love to crack jokes, but I’ve never really compared myself to any comedians before. I feel like I have my own style of being comical and goofy.



4. Any influences? Favorite comedian?

Omg. There are so many. I’ve always loved Martin Lawrence, Mike Epps, Tiffany Haddish, Aries Spears, Richard Pryor, Redd Fox, Eddie Murphy and Robin Harris. There are sooooo many here now and no longer with us that have influenced me and that are on the list of some of my favorite comedians ever.

5. What is your kind of funny?

A lot of people like raunchy comedy, me, I’m the total opposite. I love watching comedy where it’s based on real life, every day situations because we can all relate to it.

6. What dreams do you have as a comedian? 

My dreams are that one day, my passion for comedy will reach millions of people and hopefully be a relief to many in their times of pain and stress. I would love to make it on the big screen, so everyone can see what I’ve loved to do all my life.

The Frederick Fair Fight

Kiki Wilson - Oct 28, 2019

Two African-American young men were asking for a dollar to purchase more fair tickets and ride more rides. Upon approaching John Weed and asking him for $1, Weed became aggressive, called the young men racial slurs, and spit on the young men. Weed and the young men proceeded to step out of line. The video showed Weed and one of the African-American young men, both with fists up, encircled by onlookers recording, preparing to engage in a physical altercation. The young man struck and spit on Weed, and Weed fell to the ground. Upon being transported for medical attention, Weed succumbed to his injuries.
