Comedy tribute planned for Detroit’s ‘Downtown’ Tony Brown

DETROIT – A legendary voice in the Detroit comedy world has been lost.

“Downtown” Tony Brown has graced stages across the city and across the country. Brown died last month after a long career of making big appearances on shows like Def Comedy Jam and many others.

He ran with big names like Martin Lawrence, Tim Allen and Mike Bonner. His loss is felt far beyond the world of comedy.

Ford Patio Bar & Grill in Dearborn was the last time you could see Brown stand up, and it’s the same place where family, friends, and fans want to ponder his legacy.

Brown landed on the stages for Showtime at the Apollo, Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam, BET Comic View, and even toured with friend and comedian Tim Allen. Before that, Brown shone on the Metro Detroit stages and in the hearts of aspiring comedians.


Brown is the father of three boys.

His family, friends, and supporters plan to remember him with a comedy tribute at the Ford Street Patio Bar and Grill on November 9th and 11th at 9pm
