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 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 recently he's appeared in "Highway" (2012) and "How Sweet It Is" (2013).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

Get ready to clap your hands, stomp your feet and maybe even learn some new dance moves at Human Nature Jukebox. Mixing pop classics with Doo-Wop, Motown, soul standards and more, Human Nature, Australia’s top selling pop vocal group and Las Vegas headliners, is bringing audiences a show experience unlike any other on the Strip. Effortlessly blending retro cool with contemporary sounds, Jukebox takes audiences on an unforgettable journey through various genres.Starting with the classics of the Doo-Wop era, Human Nature pays tribute to the legends of Motown and soul and carries through to today’s breakout sensations. With song selections ranging from "Under the Boardwalk" to "Uptown Funk," the four men of Human Nature will have everyone dancing in their seats and tapping their toes along to the beat.Human Nature's smooth vocals and flawless harmonies have skyrocketed their popularity and success on the Las Vegas Strip for nearly a decade. Together the four entertainers; Toby Allen, Phil Burton and brothers Andrew and Michael Tierney are undeniably one of the world’s greatest pop-vocal groups, having entertained millions worldwide and releasing 23 best-selling albums in their 25-year career. Their latest multi-platinum album, "Jukebox" is the influence for the brand new show at the Venetian Las Vegas. Human Nature were voted "Best Singers" by the Las Vegas Review-Journal and have appeared on Oprah, "Dancing with the Stars," "The Chew" and headlined their own PBS Special "Human Nature Sings Motown."Although audiences in Vegas may not be that familiar with Human Nature, they are one of the most popular acts from Australia. The group formed in 1989 as a Doo-Wop band in Sydney. In 1994 they signed with Sony Music and released their debut album, "Telling Everybody" in 1995. The album was an instant hit, selling four times platinum and became the most successful debut album ever released in Australia. Human Nature released their fourth consecutive No. 1 album, "A Symphony of Hits," in 2008.As a result of their outstanding showmanship, Human Nature has performed as the opening act for Celine Dion and Michael Jackson. In 2000, they had the honor of performing the Australian National Anthem at the Sydney Olympics. During their Vegas show, the members of Human Nature get personal with their audiences and between songs greet audience members and tell stories. They explain since they were young they always aspired to be as great like The Temptations and The Miracles. Part of that inspiration came from the positive message they got from hearing Motown music and then wanting to share that experience with others.Audiences watch the group in awe, mesmerized by their four voices resounding throughout the showroom. There are several moments when Human Nature performs without the band; these songs spotlight each performer's amazing voice and the ability to perform in perfect harmony. Human Nature keeps everyone on their feet and dancing to tunes while they create an entertainment experience with feel-good messages that are found in  timeless songs.Don't miss your chance to catch Human Nature perform at the Venetian.
