Product Description

Eddie Griffin proves once more that he’s one of the world’s premiere comedic talents in his brand-new stand-up special You Can Tell ‘Em I Said It. Eddie unapologetically rips into everything from racial stereotypes to Viagra to the First Lady and will leave you gasping for air as he buzzes around the stage and literally climbs the walls. This uncut, uncensored stand-up special live from Oakland, California will keep you laughing long after he exits the stage and coming back to watch it again and again.

Amazon.com

Kicking off with an unprintable salute to Michelle Obama, Eddie Griffin's first standup special since 2008's Freedom of Speech is a hysterical--if decidedly uneven--salute to speaking one's mind. Roaming the stage with a cigarette and a mysteriously refilling glass of champagne, the loose-limbed comedian leads a receptive Oakland audience through an increasingly filthy series of ruminations on religion, sex, Tiger Woods, and childrearing, to name just a few of the topics swiftly built up and detonated, with the assist of a hilariously merciless selection of video stills. As agreeable a stage presence as Griffin is, however, not all of his material here shines, with some of the most outrageous tangents feeling a bit too calculated to be truly shocking. Things pick up mightily in the second half, however, as the comedian delves into his personal experiences, including a bit about a recent arrest for driving under the influence on Hollywood Boulevard that approaches Richard Pryor's gift for fearlessly confessional comedy. The number of whiffs on display may keep this out of the upper tier of standup specials, but hang in there: once Griffin gets in the zone, he just kills. --Andrew Wright

You came to lasugh. You didn't know he was gonna make you think. But, it ain't illegal yet. So, try it. This brother is fantastic. I agree with the other viewer. Eddie has picked up Richard Pryor's mantle and taken comedy a little bit further. Do I have a problem with this set? Yes.......I NEED MORE!

With the bar so high with the likes of Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Louis CK, etc it was a pleasent surprise to hear Griffen's brilliant comedy and commentary - as good as any of the above in it's intelligent content and hilarious narrative.

First time I got a clear street lesson on bloods and crips and drooping pants!

Paul Mooney's influence is clear with the Brink's truck reference.

I urge all to hear a refreshing take of the current politico-social climate from a proud black man (no Eddie - you are NOT a n*****) - though I cannot say I approve of how many kids he has - that is not something to boast about expecially having several ex wives and kids out of wedlock - I am not a prude but this is not something to be pleased about - be pro life if you must, but enough already of prooving your manhood with rampage procreation!

Still Eddie Griffen was a pleaseant surprise and I will be searching for all his albums, the dude has paid his dues and deserves all the success he can get as long as he stops having more babies!
