Bio

Eddie Griffin is an American actor and comedian best known for starring in the sitcom Malcolm & Eddie (1996-2000) and for his role as the title character in the 2002 comedy film Undercover Brother.

Griffin got his start in his hometown of Kansas City, Missouri, where he was dared by a friend to perform at a local comedy club on amateur night.

Griffin began developing his style following the irreverent traditions of such comedic greats as Red Foxx, Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy, and got his first big break when he landed a 22-city tour with Andrew Dice Clay.

A series of impromptu performances at the famed Comedy Store in Los Angeles led to a featured appearance on HBO's Russell Simmon's Def Comedy Jam. This was soon followed by his own HBO special, One Night Stand, which was nominated for a Cable Ace Award, and a second half-hour special.

He later filmed a third special for HBO titled Voodoo Child and recorded a comedy album on Epic Records called Message in the Hat.

Griffin's feature credits include Meteor Man and The Five Heartbeats with Robert Townsend, The Last Boyscout with Bruce Willis, The Walking Dead and Jason's Lyric, as the memorable character Rat.

In addition to Griffin's many accomplishments as a comedian and actor, he is also a professional dancer and choreographer whose credits include half-time performances for the Kansas City Chiefs.
