Editorial Reviews

Entertainer Eddie Griffin once again proves why he is the funniest man alive as he showcases his comedic talents in this hilarious stand up comedy concert filmed in front of a live audience in Atlanta, GA. Griffin is best known for his starring role as the soulful secret agent in the hit film UNDERCOVER BROTHER and for his co starring roles, along side funnyman Rob Schneider, in the DEUCE BIGALOW film franchise. In this laugh out loud 90 minute concert film Griffin draws on his own experiences and his edgy take on life to bring the house down with laughter! With his unique personality, keen insight and endless supply of original jokes, Griffin scores in this hilarious performance!

I just couldn't find anything to watch and finally picked this show on SHO.

!!!!!!

He goes for an hour and forty five minutes without taking a break, folks. And his thoughts move fast - you've got to think to keep up. No circling around things for 35 minutes to fill up the time. The man has an agenda. A lot of ground to cover.

Turns out, he takes advantage to every inch of his freedom of speech. He says things you are NOT supposed to say. But that's not his only schtick. His critical point of view turns out, in the end, to be quite coherent. He has a range of voices and physical routines that delight.

The last bit of the set is a series of impressions of Richard Pryor. It's uncanny. My hair stood on end. Griffin very much seemed to me at that moment to be the only comedian (Chapelle and Rock notwithstanding) really carrying on Pryor's tradition anymore.

I'm a HUGE fan now.

This review is from: Eddie Griffin: Freedom of Speech (DVD)
As a fan of Eddie Griffin, I had hoped that his Freedom of Speech stand-up special would be a bit more edgy than his other performances. But overall, too much of the material seemed dated, recycled, and just not that funny.

Voodoo Child was easily one of his best performances, partly because of the originality, and also how introspective the material was. But in Freedom of Speech, Eddie goes as far as digging up decades-old Black jokes ("branch manager", "snow tires") to weave into "personal" stories as filler.

There's also some recycling of his old routine on how ethnic women treat their men when they come home from work. The jokes about sugar sandwiches are also noticeably lifted from Martin Lawrence.

The crowd isn't feeling this performance as his other stand-up shows, and big laughs are rare. When Eddie breaks into jokes about mathematics and science, you can hear a pin drop in the theater.

Freedom of Speech is worth watching once, but it's probably Griffin's weakest performance to date. Definitely give this one a rent before you consider buying the DVD.

Referring to Al Sharpton, Eddie makes it clear from the start, he will continue using the "N" and "B" word in his repertoire! Because after all "I'm an artist". "Besides" he says "they didn't tell Van Gogh not to cut his ear off!" This is a very funny man, & he is among the majority of comedians who tell jokes about race, politics and sex! He is among the funniest. Besides, these are 3 topics that are prominent in American Society.

I've been trying to collect all stand up dvds of all of my husband's favorite comedians. He loves this one in particular. Although I am not a big Eddie Griffin fan, I did find this one to be funny. Eddie is direct and blunt...lots of profanity so if you're not a fan of that then this is definitely not for you. Eddie fans, you will love this!

If the saying "right on brother, right on" was created for anyone it would be this guy. Offensive, brutally honest, in the style of Cris Rock but with his own style. If you are easily offended by pretty raw sexual content, leave this one alone.
