"I really wanted to check this out because I had heard Tommy Chunn's performance on Star Search,which I liked,and I really liked him in "Undercover Brother",and I had seen him on Def Comedy Jam,and his half hour HBO special.I was GREATLY dissapointed.AJ Johnson cussed WAYYY too much,and all he talked about was sex,plus this was supposed to be an Eddie Griffin DVD,and he got A LOT more time than Eddie Griffin.Tommy Chunn used the same lines over and over.Sheryl Underwood is never funny,and Eddie Griffin just plain (...).Last Stand is not good either.Out of the whole 102 minutes,I did not laugh once.For good black comedy,check out Richard Pryor,Chris Rock,or "The Original Kings Of Comedy".From Urbanworks,check out Def Comedy Jam or the Platinum Comedy Series,especially the Platinum Comedy Series."
Not what I expected.

"I expected at least 60 minutes of Eddie Griffin, but he is on for only about 10min+. There are a number of comedians in this show. They are mostly average to above average, but they tend to tell the same jokes that have beome cliches in Black comedy: niggas vs african americans, how to avoid paying utility bills, black vs white, sex acts, etc. Don't get me wrong, there are comedians who can incorporate these topics into their acts and get away with it, but this lot don't.
There are a few good laughs including Eddgie's antics with a dwarf, but on the whole it is not worth seeing more than twice."
