Griffin started his career on stage as a dare when he was a teenager and has continued to build his fan base worldwide. The Kansas City native had been voted “Class Clown” three years in a row when his cousin dared him to get on stage at a local comedy club. He was given only a few minutes to impress the audience but ended up successfully performing off-the-cuff for 45 minutes and was hooked, purchasing a one-way ticket to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming a stand-up comedian. Griffin’s career leaped from the stage to the screen with nearly 50 credits to his name, including starring roles in the feature film Undercover Brother, John Q (with Denzel Washington) and the upcoming feature, A Star is Born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, as well as his own television series Malcolm & Eddie.
EDDIE GRIFFIN: UNDENIABLE is directed by Gobi M. Rahimi and executive produced by Griffin and Sylvia V. Hillman.
