التسجيل في فوركس It’s rare for a comedian to follow a routine about “whacking it” with lessons about broadening horizons. Then again, most comedians aren’t like Eddie Griffin. Those who attended the one-hour show Saturday night in Blackman Auditorium saw the full spectrum of the actor/comedian/dancer’s comedic talent.شراء-اسهم-البنك-العربي-الاردن-عربي-اون-لاين He incorporated bits about classes at Northeastern into his performance. Griffin talked about the pitfalls of being a sperm and mused about historical topics like how “the Indians got the munchies and called it Thanksgiving.”

Instead of just playing characters, Griffin created scenarios featuring Bill Cosby as a drug dealer and Martin Luther King Jr. as a pimp. He didn’t stop there, though. Griffin showed comic dexterity by asking the audience to come up with a profession for an improvisation of Prince. Griffin responded to the audience’s request with a Prince-gone-gangster improv. Not one to follow the rules of convention, Griffin smoked cigarettes on stage until an official backstage forced him to stop. He said with all the pollution in the air, “you might as well choose your brand.”

He said they used to hang out by the pool talking about how “they were gonna blow up.” This friendship led to Griffin being included on two tracks for Dre’s album “2001.”

Some of the people he worked with included Chris Rock, Bernie Mac, Paul Mooney and Dave Chappelle. Griffin also offered some insight on the cancellation of Chappelle’s third season. “The suits probably came in, wanted to water it down,” Griffin said. “Dave didn’t want that. Dave’s smart. People talked about him going crazy, but I don’t believe that.” البورصة القطرية شاشة التداول It’s easy to understand how Griffin is still active in comedy after 15 years. His comedy can go beyond the “Deuce Bigalow”-esque crassness.

Nevertheless, despite becoming increasingly popular in Hollywood, Griffin still prefers standup. As he said during his set, “There’s something about seeing the people, smelling the people, that beats filming a movie.”
