An Emmy winner for his outstanding performance in the television drama, “Our Father,” this former escape artist’s (handcuffs, chains, straight ­jackets) abilities range from intense drama to stand-up comedy. Anthony Griffith, was destined to make you laugh. Married, growing up in the inner city and reared by a religious mother, all help lay the foundation for Anthony’s hilarious insights about life, liberty and the pursuit of sanity. ­Anthony’s rise in comedy is in no small part due to his inventive brand of humor. Whether reminiscing about a younger brother saddled with hand-me-downs, “even his childhood pictures were old pictures of me” ­or his thoughts on marriage, “After twenty years, five stitches and one restraining order, I’ve learned to say I’m sorry.” ­It’s this story-telling style that captured the attention of Lea Thau of The Storyville Center for the Spoken Word. Invited to participate in “The Moth” story-telling festival in Aspen, Co. several years ago, ­Anthony mesmerized audiences with his raw honesty and wit, sharing a personal story never before revealed. ­His stand up stylings have been seen over the years on ­"Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen," Comedy Central's “Premium Blend," ­NBC’s "TheTonight Show" - (3x) with Johnny Carson, (3x) with Jay Leno, "The Arsenio Hall Show" (6x), ­"Comic Strip Live" (7x), "Showtime" Comedy Special, A&E's "Evening at The Improv" as well as the finals of "Star Search" with Ed McMahon, "VH1 Comedy" hosted by Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase alum Rosie O’Donnell, ­"Late Friday" and Bob Hope’s Young Comedians Special. His talents have also been shown in TV dramas and comedies including "Carpoolers," “The Rat Thing,” "The Showbiz Show with David Spade,"­ "The Bernie Mac Show," ­“Curb Your Enthusiasm," ­“The Benadryl Brownie,” "Savannah" the TV series and ­"The Parent 'Hood" with Robert Townsend.­

This is a brand new face at the Comedy Showcase.­Another “Gotta see” show!!!!!
