When you come to an Eddie Griffin show, you can easily expect your ass off. That was exactly the case with this show as well and nothing was safe relationships, politics or religions. What I like most about Eddie Griffin, which you can read in our interview with him, is that he doesn’t prepare much for his show. When he gets out on stage he just goes with the flow and speaks whatever is on him mind. He also says what everyone is thinking and no one is saying.  Some topics are edgy and controversial but he proves he is a smart guy and backs up what he is saying but also throws the funny twist in there. He is very engaging with the audience and pokes a little fun but all in good intentions.

Throughout our show, Eddie was enjoying his French champagne very much, which probably caused him to run about 30 minutes over his allotted time. Either way the audience loved it and he made it clear that this is his last stand-up tour (hopefully not forever), so it was no holds barred. In my eyes, I did feel though that the last 30 minutes dragged a little due to it being more audience based and less content based, but overall the show was very entertaining and packed with non-stops laughs.  If I have another opportunity to catch a show I will be there in the drop of a hat.
