Just as influences Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy did before him and peers Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle continue to do alongside him, comedian Eddie Griffin's greatest weapon is his ability to turn racial differences into great observational humor. Whether making hyperbolic comparisons in walking styles, churchgoing experiences — even tactics in criminal behavior, Griffin isn't shy about pointing things out in black and white. The man behind the underrated blaxploitation spoof, “Undercover Brother,” Griffin is scheduled to bring some new stand-up material to the Funny Bone on Friday, July 9, and Saturday, July 10, at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. $30.
