Eddie Griffin is now enjoying the career that he had always planned. Eddie was recently seen starring opposite Eddie Murphy in the blockbuster comedy Norbit, in which he played "Pope Sweet Jesus," who is Norbit's (Murphy's) counselor and confident.
On the small screen, Griffin appeared in a series of hilarious commercials for Miller Lite beer; the commercial campaign featured a number of notable people including Burt Reynolds.
Eddie's film resume includes: Undercover Brother, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, its sequel Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, Date Movie, Scary Movie 3, Redline, My Baby's Daddy, John Q., and Armageddon. And of course, there was Dysfunktional Family, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. Dysfunktional Family combined Griffin's stand-up comedy act with a cinema verite look at his personal life. Griffin produced, co-wrote and performed on the film's soundtrack with Suge Knight.
Eddie is probably best known to television audiences as the star of UPN's hit comedy series Malcolm and Eddie, where he was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for "Best Actor in a Comedy Series." Griffin also wrote and directed four episodes of the sitcom, one of which starred his mentor, Richard Pryor.
Griffin began his career in Kansas City, Missouri. He was working as a choreographer for a soccer team when a cousin bet him $50 that he would not go on stage during a visit to a local comedy club. After winning the bet, Griffin purchased a one-way ticket to Los Angeles. One month later he was performing at the renowned Comedy Store, where he was compared with Richard Pryor, Redd Foxx and Lenny Bruce.
Those performances led to featured appearances on Def Comedy Jam, the cable ACE-nominated One Night Stand, the HBO special Voodoo Child, and the stage of the legendary Apollo Theater. Griffin's comedy album, The Message, features comedic and musical performances by Griffin as well as Master P, Silkk The Shocker, and Fiend. Griffin held the first live comedy/R&B/hip-hop Webcast, "MLK 2K": We Still Have The Dream, during a Comedy Store performance. He has formed his own independent record label, Bluelight Records.
