Default Dave Chappelle -vs- Eddie Griffin: Who U Got?

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.


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?

Chappelle and it's not even close. The dude is a comedic genius. Not only are his stand up's funny, but his show was f***in hilarious and every role he's ever played in a movie was hilarious.

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.

Dave Chappelle is a smarter comic. Eddie has his outrageous type of comedic style but Dave Chappelle is on a whole lane.

N Dave Chappelle wasn't done, he just left the showbiz cuz he got tired of the spotlight

I've seen them both live.

Chappelle is funnier.

Not sure is Dave is a smarter comic, I've seen both. Dave is a better story teller. If you leave that means you're done. I really hope he make a comeback though.
