Johnny Brown (born June 11, 1937 in St. Petersburg, Florida) is an American actor and singer. Brown is a nightclub and stage performer as well as a comic actor, and a regular cast member of the television series Laugh-in. Brown is mostly remembered for his chubby physique, wide ingratiating smile, mobile facial expressions, and easy pleasant joking style. Brown is most famous, however, for his role as building superintendent "Nathan Bookman" on the 1970s CBS sitcom, Good Times. Bookman was often the brunt of fat jokes via the show's main character "J.J. Evans" (Jimmie Walker). Brown portrayed Bookman until the series was canceled in 1979. Other television shows Brown has appeared on include The Jeffersons, Family Matters, and Martin.
