After watching both of these men over the past 15+ years, I have come to the conclusion that Eddie Griffin is a greater stand up performer than Dave Chappelle.
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.
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
97 HBO Comedy Half-Hour
00 Killin' Them Softly
05 For What It's Worth
Didn't Griffin smash up some Ferrari or some shit? Dude just came off as a tool IMO from the beginning - whereas D.C. was on-point since Half Baked fast-forward. This one's a no-brainer.
Half-Baked fast forward is only what 6 years. He was done after 2004 basically.
Griffin crashed a ferrari tryin to race on the set of some film, haha.
Still, have y'all not seen Dysfunktional Family or You Can Tell Em I Said It or VooDoo Child? Those are required stand up films. Chappelle's best was Killing Them Softly and his 97 Comedy Half Hour on HBO.
