Tonight @ Jokerz Comedy Club, 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
Known for his cutting social observations and over-the-top impressions (including an infamous bit that imagines a crack-addicted Michael Jackson), Eddie Griffin hinges much of his raunchy comedy on biting racial satire. After getting his start in the sitcom "Malcolm & Eddie," Griffin moved on to movies, appearing in fare like Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and Norbit and starring in Undercover Brother as the title character, though so far few of his films have captured the confrontational energy of his stand-up performances. (Multiple shows through Saturday, March 5.)
