  • G-Thang

    G-Thang

     Born Gary Johnson, G-Thang (his nickname) began his career as a stand-up comic, primarily dealing with urban-oriented and racially themed material. He distinguished himself, however, by avoiding much of the raunchiness that characterized his colleagues on the stand-up circuit and by delving into current affairs to a somewhat unusual degree. He projected a slightly hyper and reckless (though not manic) attitude on-stage and in interviews, which became a personal trademark. G-Thang transitioned to motion pictures with a role as Calvin in the no-holds-barred genre spoof Disaster Movie (2008) opposite Kim Kardashian and Carmen Electra.

    Cocoa Brown

    If you took a dab of Richard Pryor’s honesty, a teaspoon of Clair Huxtable’s educated fervor and a cup of Pearl Bailey’s girl next door sassiness, you’d get a dynamic dish known as CoCoa Brown. Not only a comedian but educated and well-rounded women with a Masters in Education that will make you laugh as you are getting 'schooled" on a variety of topics!
     
                With animated facial expressions, body gestures and the material to back it up, audiences are taken on a hilarious voyage through the eyes and mind of Brown.  Whether she’s talking about herself, relationships or the world we live in, Brown offers a variety that appeal to all.  One-dimensional she is not and you will never see the same set twice.  “Once I get rolling, I feed off of my crowd, I love bringing them into my world,” explains Brown.  “I believe in being able to give the crowd what they want and I’m able to take my set in any direction at the drop of a dime.”  Versatile Brown can deliver on command a squeaky clean ‘there’s-deacons-in-the audience’ type of show and then make a 360-degree turn and give a show that would make even Don Rickles blush.
     
                Delivering an honest and humorous show, Brown has generated a large and loyal following all over the world.  Audiences are treated to Cocoa’s thought-provoking humor, in which she declares “I don’t tell jokes, I tell the truth!” Not only do they get a great show, but they feel as though they have gained a friend.  She has a style that relates to both women and men and an energy and warmness on and off the stage that has earned her the respect and love of crowds and colleagues alike.
     
               
    Brown has performed in front of a variety of audiences including Kennedy Center Honors Richard Pryor, Def Comedy Jam Tour and on Bill Bellamy’s “Who’s Got Jokes” competition on TV1.  She has appeared on nine consecutive seasons on BET’s Comic View, twice being voted “Funniest Female” on the popular show and was reigning champion in the Comedy TKO on Showtime at the Apollo, and she has appeared on the Starz in Black comedy series “The 1st Amendment”, produced by Martin Lawrence.  She has also been featured on Comedy Central’s “Comic Groove” with Tracy Morgan and was a featured comedian on BET’s stand up show, “One Mic Stand”.

From concerned parent on “The Young and The Restless,”,   to the sassy  receptionist on NBC’s “Las Vegas” to the baker with allergies to chocolate on “ER”, to the cheeky mail lady on AMC’s “Breaking Bad” . But Cocoa will always stay true to her love for “funny” and sketch comedy.  She’s been Star Jones on Nick Cannon’s “Short Circuitz”, a “spooky” beautician on Ashton Kutcher’s “Room 401" and a Judge from hell on “Next”, all on MTV, to Morgan Freeman’s Mom and Barack Obama’s BIGGEST fan on Frank Caliendo’s sketch show, “Frank TV”, to the queen of ghetto beat downs on the news sketch show “Chocolate News”, created by David Allen Grier, on Comedy Central. Cocoa has also appeared on the hit CBS show “2BrokeGirls”, created by “Sex in the City” creator, Michael Patrick King, and as the loveable nail technician Chardonnay, on the ABC show, Good Christian Belles.

Her episode, “Church in a Box” can be seen on the popular outlet, YouTube, which is getting major hits each day. 
     
               
    Cocoa is a somewhat of a renaissance artist, producing, writing and directing 2 stage plays, “Judgment Day” and “Dear Hollywood”,  both featured and receiving rave reviews at the 2009 NAACP Theatre Festival (excerpts of both plays can be seen on www.youtube.com). She’s also developing a sitcom and sketch comedy show for TBS, with major producers already attached.  She is also currently writing her book and preparing her one-woman show, “Confessions of a Suicidal Diva ®” and “Comedy Cookin’ with Cocoa®”.  Also, Cocoa hosts and executive produces with her husband, actor Bubba Ganter, her own weekly Blog, Bitter2Bride©, on YouTube and Face book, where she gives the world a weekly dose of TRUTH about today's issues.
