Comedian Anthony Griffith has been entertaining audience and making them laugh for over 25 years in club clubs, on “The Tonight Show” and appearances in films like “Tales from the Hood” and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle.” As Griffith himself once said, “I performed anywhere and everywhere, in the hopes of learning and mastering the craft.” Anthony Griffith demonstrates his ability to mine comedy, laughter and inspiration from the everyday experiences of a family man, without resorting to crude language or material.
Over his long career, Griffiths had managed to find laughter, comedy and spirit to move forward, even during the darkest times in his life, as when he lost his young daughter to cancer or received a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis as he demonstrated in his performance at the well-respected “The Moth” story telling show.
Griffiths began his show business career in his native Chicago while still a college student, taking his stand-up comedy to cafes, restaurants, and hotels to develop his style. After an attention-getting appearance on Ed McMahon’s “Star Search,” Griffith’s career took off and has now included appearances on “The Tonight Show” with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, Comedy Central and HBO comedy shows. He has also appeared on notable TV shows like “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “The Bernie Mac Show” and “Who’s The Boss,” as well as in films.
Griffiths can be seen with the “Apostles of Comedy” tour, performing alongside fellow comedians Jeff Allen, Brad Stine and Ron Pearson around the country in skits and routines, as well as in stand-up comedy club and other personal appearances.
