    Eddie Griffin

    Comedy

    A popular comedian turned actor who started his career on-stage as a dare, funnyman Eddie Griffin has built an ever-growing fan base since jumping onto the comedy scene in 1990.

    Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Eddie was voted class clown three years in a row in high school. His first love was always dance and by the young age of 16, he opened his own dance studio and was choreographing the Kansas City Chiefs half-time shows. But all of that would soon change when one night his cousin dared him to go on stage at the local comedy club Sanford and Sons where he was told to do 3 minutes. He performed off-the-cuff for 45 minutes successfully. It was then that Griffin purchased a one-way ticket to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming a stand up.

    In only one short month, he was a regular at the renowned Comedy Store, where he was compared with esteemed talents such as Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx, and Lenny Bruce. After only 2 short months, Griffin was chosen to open for Andrew Dice Clay at Madison Square Garden that kicked off a 22-city tour.

    These many successful performances led to Eddie Griffin’s appearance on Russell Simmons' Def Comedy Jam“1992”, the Cable Ace Award-nominated HBO special One Night Stand “1992”, HBO Comedy Half Hour Special “1995”, the HBO special Voodoo Child “1997” and onstage at the legendary Apollo Theater. He also recorded the successful comedy albums Message In The Hat “1993” and The Message “1999” featuring comedic and musical performances by him as well as Master P, Sikk the Shocker, and Fiend. Griffin began branching out into acting. Roles in such films as The Last Boy Scout “1991”, Coneheads “1993”, and Jason's Lyric “1994” soon led to his own hit comedy series Malcolm and Eddie “1996-2000”, for which role he was nominated (1996) and won (2000) the NAACP Image Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.

    In addition to lending his acting experience to this sitcom, he also wrote and directed four episodes, one of which
    starred his mentor and Richard Pryor. After, he was offered a lead role in Double Take “2001” alongside Orlando Jones.
    Griffin then starred alongside Denzel Washington in John Q “2002”, earning him respect as a dramatic actor. Shortly thereafter, his leading-man status lead to his role as Anton Jackson in Undercover Brother "2002". Mr. Griffin’s extensive film resume includes films such as and Armageddon “1998”, and the worldwide successful comedy franchise Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo “1999” and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo “2005”, as well as Date Movie “2006“, Scary Movie 3“2003“, My Baby’s Daddy “ 2004” “which he starred, wrote and Executive Produced for Miramax. Eddie also contributed and performed on Dr. Dre’s Multi-Platinum selling albums The Chronic “1992” and Chronic 2001 “2001”.

    Eddie Griffin is widely known for his award winning Comedy Stand-up Special Dysfunktional Family “2003” which he starred, wrote, Executive Produced and performed on the film’s soundtrack with Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Tupac.
    Eddie most recently starred alongside Eddie Murphy in the hit feature Norbit “2007” and starred, wrote and Executive Produced his next comedy special Freedom Of Speech “2007”. Later that year he contributed to and performed on T-Pain’s worldwide successful album Circus “2008” and starred in Disney’s Beethoven’s Big
    Break “2008”.

    Eddie’s most recent comedy special YOU CAN TELL ‘EM I SAID IT premiered on Comedy Central on February 19, 2011.
    Eddie currently performs in Las Vegas weekly at The Rio Suites Hotel & Casino. Comedy Central honored him as the Top 100 Greatest Stand-ups of all time. Eddie Griffin has conquered not only the stage, but the silver screen as well.
