Eddie Griffin at the Kalamazoo State Theatre, October 5th

Funnyman Eddie Griffin is coming to the historic Kalamazoo State Theatre on
October 5.
A popular comedian turned actor who started his career on stage as a dare, Eddie
Griffin has built an ever-growing fan base since jumping onto the comedy scene in
1990.
Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Eddie was voted class clown three years in a row in high
school. His first love was always dance and by the young age of 16, he opened his own
dance studio and was choreographing the Kansas City Chiefs half-time shows. But all of
that would soon change when one night his cousin dared him to go on stage at the local
comedy club Sanford and Sons where he was told to do 3 minutes. He performed off-
the-cuff for 45 minutes successfully. It was then that Griffin purchased a one-way ticket
to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming a stand-up.
He played The Pastor opposite Dave Chappelle, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in
2018’s Academy Award Winning feature film A Star is Born.
His Showtime Comedy Special Eddie Griffin: Undeniable debuted on Showtime in
February 2018 to rave reviews.
