Other people rating this seem to downgrade it based on cussing. I don't have a problem with cussing - this is in the tradition of Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and others - and it ranks up there with them. If you expect something else, that's your bad. This is some of the funniest stand-up I have ever seen, he had me crying. The man is hilarious, and needs to put out more of this type of off-the-chain material, instead of being all bottled-up on Malcolm and Eddie and Baby Daddy and stuff like that. I feel like this is the REAL Eddie Griffin.

Also, this is called a documentary of him returning home, but that's inaccurate, it's a stand-up show with cuts of his family and hometown interspersed.

I don't know why there's so many bad reviews about this dvd. Eddie Griffin is a great comedian and incorporated parts of his life to better tell his story. He did use the "N" word excessively but so what? Rappers do it all the time to express themselves but everyone is complaining about him using the word for some reason. I think his standup routine comes in close second to Dave Chapelle's "Killin Em Softly".

Another very funny preformance of Eddie Griffin featuring all new material and inculde family members sharing stories of Eddie when he was younger. He still brings it hard and I have to agree with another reviewer that the sexual material in the comedy show was a bit much, but still funny as hell. The two parts that I had the most fun with was the religious material in the comedy show, and when he did fellow black comedians doing something else instead of becoming very funny comedians. The whole show is roughly 90 minutes and you will laugh so hard I cry in mutiple parts of the show. So if you like a good comedian in general check this guy out I now own two of his preformances, this and You can Tell Em I said It.

First I don't know Why people get offended by things said in stand up comedy knowing that if it says on the back of the dvd case rated R It's gonna have some words that will offend people who have virgin ears. In Dysfunctional Family I have to salute Eddie Griffen because I truly did doubt his capability to perform a descent stand up let alone a great one but he sure pulled it off. In Dysfunctional Family Eddie basically talks about his life and obviously his hard and good times with his Dysfunktional Family. I was surprised how he even made jokes about the really hard times with his family and made them hilarious like having to live with his uncle for a bit and watching him do drugs, or when he first met his father when he was a teen. Some of these stories are outrageous but you believe them because his family is there the whole time talking and laughing about the stories. Eddie Griffen surely does have a unique and Dysfunktional Family and I'm glad he shared their stories. This is a great stand up every time I see this I'm laughing for the next few days trying to get theese jokes out of my system.

Blisteringly funny is best how to describe this DVD. Richard Pryor calls Griffin "the funniest man alive". Griffin brings it in this hilarious and raunchy gem! The laughs do not stop as Eddie talks about his old 'hood. Most comedians get their inspiration from real life events and this is no exception. Remember Bill Cosby's "Himself" album? Imagine that but MUCH more harsh language and I mean HARSH.

Now don't get me wrong this show was funny most of the time. But the profanity was ridiculous!!!! I don't care how old you are; still never used that kind of language in front off your mother. I could see in her face that she didn't like it. I know everyone has their own opinion and this is mine. Would Iwatch this again never!!! However the man is really funny.

Dysfunktional Family
I enjoy watching stand-up comedians, and have seen many, many, many talented comedians. Since "laughter is the best medicine", this specific show by Eddie Griffin is as good as adding 20+ years to your life. I have never laughed so hard, and was in actual pain (stitches in my sides), tears streaming, throat sore, carpet abused from my rolling repeatedly on it. Hahaha!
OK, now...just a warning, for those who do NOT like vulgar language: I don't think there are even 10 sentences that didn't have the F-word, etc. However, as I don't normally care for vulgar language, in this case, it was his genuine, sincere and appropriate use of it that lifted the show from very funny to totally hysterical!
Eddie Griffen, in Dysfunktional Family, hits the nail on the head about the pains so many of us experienced growing up in the 70's and 80's, and beyond, and makes you suddenly feel so FREE and LIGHT, as you laugh away, easily relating, to his exceptionally talented tales of his own personal, humble upbringing.
Hope you try it, and enjoy it as much as I did.
