Eddie Griffin has experienced a lot of success during his career, but the famed comedian told us that his favorite film he’s done is “Foolish,” which was based on his life. Eddie also shared with VladTV how the film came together after he helped Master P during the start of his rap career by letting him be his opening act. The comedian revealed that his gesture led to Master P later offering to do a movie with Eddie and cutting him a $1 million check for the film’s script.
While Eddie spoke about some of the highs during his career, he also spoke about his rough start, which included being homeless and “sleeping standing up” when he first landed in Los Angeles. Griffin explained that he juggled three jobs while waiting to break through in comedy, which happened after he caught the attention of Andrew Dice Clay during his set at The Comedy Store.
