 Eddie Griffin
Eddie Griffin
Eddie Griffin doesn't just tell jokes, he has a message: Children are our future, God isn't religion and don't get a blow joke from a woman on speed, her chattering teeth won't do you any favors. Griffin doesn't hold anything back with his signature brand of "Comedy without a Condom."There's more to Griffin's jokes than amusement. They reflect his opinions on topics like race, religion, politics, fatherhood and being a pimp. Audiences at his R-rated show at the Rio leave with laugh lines on their faces and a better insight to the comedy veteran.With more than 30 years of performing on his resume, Griffin has no problem working the room. He talks to the audience while sipping a champagne drink he refers to as a "liquid blunt" and smoking cigarettes. Most of his jokes seem like prepared material, but he also demonstrates his talent for creating off-the-cuff comedy based on comments from the audience. Griffin doesn't spotlight people like  insult comics do, but he does address boisterous individuals who shout things out during the show. The intimate showroom means that even the seats in the back are close to the stage.Griffin got his start as a comedian when his cousin dared him to go on stage at a local comedy club. What was supposed to be only a three minute spot turned into a successful 45 minute on-the-spot stand-up comedy routine. Griffin realized his talent for performing in front of a live audience and purchased a one-way ticket to Los Angeles to pursue his dream.After only a month of performing in Los Angeles he became a regular headliner at the famed Comedy Store, doing impersonations and stand-up routines. Griffin's take on Andrew Dice Clay became particularly well known and landed him the opening slot on Dice's national tour and a part in his film "Dice Rules," released in 1991. Griffin also toured with Robert Townsend and The Dells in a 1991 music and comedy revue to promote Townsend's film "The Five Heartbeats."In 1992 Griffin appeared on "Russell Simmon's Def Comedy Jam" and the HBO special “One Night Stand.” The following year he recorded his comedy album, "Message in the Hat." He headlined his own special, "HBO Comedy Half-Hour: Eddie Griffin," in 1995. In 1999 he released another comedy album, "The Message," which featured both comedic and musical performances by Griffin along with Master P and Silkk the Shocker.Griffin has also had success as an actor. Some of his film credits include “The Last Boy Scout" (1991), “Coneheads” (1993) and “Jason's Lyric" (1994). He went on to star in his own comedy series, "Malcolm & Eddie," one of UPN's most successful and long-running sitcoms. It ran from 1996 - 2000.Afterwards, Griffin continued to land roles in films including: "Armageddon" (1998), "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" (1999), "John Q" (2002), "Undercover Brother" (2002), "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo" (2005), "Date Movie" (2006), and "Scary Movie 3" (2003).He most recently starred alongside Eddie Murphy in the movie "Norbit" released in 2007. That same year he also starred in, wrote and executive produced his own comedy special, "Freedom of Speech."More than anything Griffin lets the audiences at his shows know how much he loves performing. Making people laugh is a natural talent for Griffin, and getting paid for it is an opportunity the comic doesn't take for granted.--By Caroline Fontein

Witty, Quick and Hilarious
PostedJune 26, 2013
One forgets just how many movies Eddie has been in and it was a great add on before the show started to show funny clips from his movies to get you in the right frame of mind ! My sides hurt laughing so hard because when Eddie finished one joke and you were laughing he was already going to the next one and you couldn't stop to catch your breath. His act is a smooth, nonstop diatribe of hilarity. He doesn't care about the time and enjoys telling the jokes as much as we care about hearing them !!! Its a must see in Vegas !!!

Mentalist mystifies audiencesStaff ReportGerry McCambridge has one of the most unique acts on the Strip as well as one of the most unique job titles: Mentalist. As a "mentalist," McCambridge reads the minds of random audience members and predicts the outcome of random situations during the performance. The entire show is also laced with comedy and plenty of audience interaction, making each performance a different experience.For the past 20 years, celebrities have flown McCambridge, also known as the "Mentalist to the Stars," around the world to entertain at Hollywood parties. He has performed for such names as Donald Trump, Courteney Cox, Howard Stern, Lisa Kudrow, Tim Burton, Dennis Miller, David Spade, Carrie Fisher and many more.In 2004 McCambridge had his first one-hour network prime-time television special on NBC. Millions more around the world have seen the special in countries such as Canada, Africa, Australia, Korea, the Middle East, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.In the summer of 2004, McCambridge also took his one-man mind reading show to New York City. His off-Broadway show was a critically-praised hit.

Personable , Professional and Mystifying
PostedJune 21, 2013
On more than one occasion the audience looked at each other with a "how did he do that" and the Mentalist received several standing ovations.
One important part was using so many people in the audience which made us all feel like we were part of the show. Having a limited number of seating allowed for the audience to all have great seats and create an intimate environment. I highly recommend this show for all ages !!!
