Eddie Griffin Las Vegas show Review
Eddie Griffin Las Vegas show playing at Sahara will have you rolling in your chair and crying tears of laughter if you are not the sensitive type or someone who is ok with not being politically correct. Eddie Griffin has made a living on his uncanny ability to make people feel uncomfortable and his residency at the Sahara Hotel is not any different.
The Eddie Griffin Experience is a funny 60-minute production that opens with a punch and ends with a punch. Throughout the show Griffin parades around the stage criticizing, preaching, and making fun of just about everything of life. He has his moments of being little quacky but if you have followed his movie career then you would understand why. After appearing on the big screen in more than 50 movies, you can see exactly why he is little off-the-chain and barking at times.
Griffin has no problem bringing race and politics into his performance which may offend some people but hey, sometimes that is what comedy is all about. The show is not really scripted but at times he follows a thread to somewhere different, only to return to his original thoughts. He has no problem asking people or better yet telling people about his ideas on interracial marriage or what someone of color might be going through in life at any given moment.
The Eddie Griffin Las Vegas show has many aspects of comedy that might be considered whacko and that is what Griffin wants you to believe. Not everyone is sane in the head and many times comedians don’t know how insane they sound at times. But the show will make you laugh until your belly hurts from the opening curtain.
Griffin is a true mastermind in his ideas about being funny and The Eddie Griffin Las Vegas show is truly an experience and not just a comedy show at some comedy club. Sure he drinks a little on stage during his performance and his mind wanders at times but if you like old-fashion comedy from the hood then The Eddie Griffin Experience is the perfect Las Vegas comedy show for you to go watch.
