Grinnin’ for Griffin

Oprah recently made a plea to Jay-Z to stop using the N-word. Jigga Man refused, and comedian Eddie Griffin has the rapper’s back. When it comes to the comic’s very R-rated comedy, you can’t help but notice his love for the term. But when someone is making you laugh that hard, you might just overlook it. Talking as fast as a hyper child off Ritalin and with the potty mouth of drunken sailor, Griffin has likely offended you at least once. He’s a comedy staple known for his UPN show Malcolm & Eddie and has been in cinematic classics such as Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Scary Movie, and Norbit. And let’s not forget his role on Chappelle’s Show as Grits and Gravy. He might never walk the Oscar stage, but the minute he hits the stand-up mike, get ready to chuckle. See Griffin at the Miami Improv at 8:30 p.m. this Thursday, with performances through Saturday. Oh, and all of you politically correct Pollys: We suggest you stay home.
Thu., Sept. 23, 8:30 p.m., 2010
