As good as if not better than RP Sunset Strip !!
10 January 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Eddie Griffin's masterpiece standup comendy routine has been perfected! This inside look at his growing up in Kansas City is amazing! His "perverted" uncle who tapes the women he has sex with to his other uncle crack smoking talk is priceless. Eddie has come a long way from his early days of comedy and his days on "Malcolm & Eddie". When you watch this you realize that as a storyteller, he's as good if not better than the Grandfather of Comedy concert films, Richard Pryor. Eddie is out of that same mold. This film will surprise a lot of people with it's honesty and openess. Eddie is so much more than the "Undercover Brother", he's a worthwhile superstar!! He's growing up, learning the meaning of life and sharing it with us to laugh at and enjoy. I saw a rough screening several months ago at a small theatre in the LA area without the soundtrack. I have heard that rapper/trouble again'd Sug Knight did the soundtrack! This should be the concert film event of the year, don't miss it! If there was a higher rating than a "10", I would say it's a 12 !!!!
