Eddie Griffin("men are afraid to say that they would love to have Michelle Obama in their bed")
A.V. Club Milwaukee ^ | February 25, 2011 | Nathan Rabin

Posted on 02/24/2011 10:47:23 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

2002’s Undercover Brother looked primed to make comic and consummate scene-stealer Eddie Griffin a bona fide movie star. The film was a commercial and critical success, but the expected sequels have not been forthcoming and Griffin has spent the ensuing years alternating between stand-up comedy and small but memorable roles in flashy fare like Norbit. Griffin is no stranger to bit parts: He made his film debut as “Gas Station Attendent” in manager/mentor Andrew “Dice” Clay’s concert film Dice Rules before playing characters like “Ventriloquist” in The Five Heartbeats, “Messenger” in Brain Donors and, of course, “Guest at Kid’s Bachelor Party” in House Party 3. From 1996 to 2000, Griffin co-starred opposite Malcolm Jamal-Warner in Malcolm & Eddie (a sitcom that was mercilessly mocked in the web series that inspired Undercover Brother.) Griffin recently released a DVD of his latest stand-up special, Eddie Griffin: You Can Tell ’Em I Said It. (Griffin appears at Jokerz for a run of shows that begins March 3.)

Eddie Griffin: You Can Tell ’Em I Said It (2011)

The A.V. Club: How do you think you’ve evolved as a stand-up over the last 20 years or so?

Eddie Griffin: Let’s see, it’s gotten wittier, it’s gotten smarter, and the subject matter has gotten grittier.

AVC: What do you mean by grittier?

EG: I’m taking more chances, daring to say what people think.

AVC: What kind of things do you think people think but are afraid to say for whatever reason?

EG: I think men are afraid to say that they would love to have Michelle Obama in their bed, but they think it.

AVC: Why would they be afraid to say that?

EG: You know, Secret Service showing up at your house, sh*t like that.....

That headline is correct. I would not say it because it wouldn’t be true.

Eddie I like you and your films but that has to be a fantasy of yours.
Most of the rest of us would prefer to try to forget that picture if we can.

Eddie, there just isn't enough liquor and drugs on this entire planet to make me want Michelle Obama in my bed.

Oh, I get it. It’s part of that Obama Administration ‘gay affirmative therapy’ to get fags not to kill themselves.

Yawn.

This dude wouldn't know gritty if it ran up and bit him on the ass. John Bolton is gritty. Dick Cheney is gritty. This guy is just a child.

I can honestly say I’ve never had the desire to bed any First Lady*, and that includes Mrs. Obama.

No amount of beer or vodka will make the First Yeti look attractive to me. I would probably die of alcohol poisoning before she starts to warp into Halle Berry.

Now that is a first. Did someone pay him to say that?
Seems like the media has been in damage control for some time now when it comes to her looks, weight and food control crap.

No. Just no. I’d rather spend a week at the Overlook hotel with Jack Nicholson. I’d rather listen to Lee Marvin sing “Rainy Days and Mondays.”

What a crack head. Is there any rational person who would sleep with her other than an effeminate cuckold hiding his true sexuality?

She is the opposite of Viagra.

Yeah, but not all chicks can out arm-wrestle you in the dark. Or put you in a choke-hold. I'd just like to have some input on who's mounting who once in a while. That's all I'm saying...

I guess I am really out of touch, but who or what is an “Eddie Griffin”? I’ve never heard of this guy. He seems to have delusions of adequacy and grandeur.

As Earl Stanley Gardner’s famous fictional criminal lawyer, Perry Mason, was to say: “You have assumed a fact not in evidence.”
