HOLD UP: Eddie Griffin performs at the San Jose Improv.

Eddie Griffin’s career began with a dare. The 51-year-old comic’s cousin challenged him give standup a try at the Sanford and Sons comedy club in Kansas City. What started as a lark morphed into a 45-minute improv set, and Griffin’s been hooked on the art of cracking wise ever since. The Missouri-raised Griffin is known for Malcolm & Eddie, Scary Movie 3 and recently as the pastor who married Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born. At a show in 2017, he expressed vexation at white people’s love of adventure tourism and creepy crawly creatures. “Don’t fuck with nothin’ that got more legs than us!”
