Bryan McCree, this weekend at the Comedy Showcase, plays his funniest character: Himself

By Roger LeLievre

Comedian Bryan McCree, who jokes he's "Irish on my master's side," is the nephew of the late Floyd McCree, a civil rights pioneer who was elected Flint mayor in 1966, the first black mayor of an American city that size.

Bryan McCree returns Friday night and Saturday night to Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase. He has been seen on "Mad TV" and Comedy Central and has appeared in concert with the likes of Sinbad, Cameo and the Isley Brothers. He most recently earned honors in the best of NBC's "Stand Up For Diversity" finals.
