Eddie Griffin is currently in tour with heavy hitters DL Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer, George Lopez and Charlie Murphy. Called the Black and Brown Tour.

Dave Chappelle just filmed an HBO special that should premier later this year.

apparently, when you are homeless, you are homeless. when you are in the comedy business.

By these titles, I can be the predator, or the invited guest.

I'll make a better list, best black comics from 1990 to present day.

1 Rock
1 Martin Lawrence
3 Damon Wayans
4 Chappelle
5 Griffin
6 Hughley
7 Sinbad (mad underrated)
8 Bernie Mac
9 David Alan Grier
10 Cedric
11 Tommy Davidson
12 George Wallace
13 Patrice O'Neal
14 Wanda Sykes (women need love too)
15 Bill Bellamy
16 Steve Harvey
17 Mark Curry
18 Chris Tucker
19 Jamie Foxx
20 Faizon Love
21 Kevin Hart
22 Joe Torry
23 Tracy Morgan
24 Katt Williams
25 Aries Spears

Respect for recognizing Sinbad...he always gets overshadowed by much lesser talents and gets cast aside because of his "clean" material. Clean or not, the dude is naturally funny as ****.

Overall Chappelle Show peak trumps so many other comedians...

Yet if its based on overall career work Eddie Griffin wins. I've seen him a few times.

While Dave obviously had a higher peak, Griffin has been putting out consistent stand up material for a long, long time. Dave is the better side man in films though, like in Nutty Professor, Blue Streak and even Undercover Brother with Eddie Griffin.


Dave has just 3 stand up specials compared to 7 for Eddie Griffin.


GRIFFIN
92 HBO One Night Stand
94 The Black Man's Bible
97 VooDoo Child
02 The Last Stand: Raw & Uncut
03 Dysfunktional Family
08 Freedom of Speech
11 You Can Tell 'Em I Said It

CHAPPELLE
97 HBO Comedy Half-Hour
00 Killin' Them Softly
05 For What It's Worth

------

What's your take?




You are vastly overrating the importance and significance of a "special".

A "special" is no different than a regular show, except there is a camera crew there.

For instance, Chappelle has been doing stand up around the country for the past few years, and from various youtube clips I've seen, the sh*t is hilarious. But according to you it doesn't count, because he never officially called up a camera crew to make these shows into "specials".

Never said it didn't count. But a special is where various people who don't go to a comedy show can get a glimpse of the performer.

Chappelle has a special on HBO later this year.

Dave Chappelle is light years ahead of Eddie Griffin. It's not even close. TBH I feel bad for Dave getting disrespected badly with this comparison

Dave vs. Chris Rock would have been more fair. Damn I wish Chris Rock went back to the mic.
