Tonight @ Jokerz Comedy Club, 7:30 p.m. and 10 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 little-loved fare like Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and Norbit and starring in Undercover Brother as the title character. His movie appearances have yet to capture the confrontational energy of his stand-up performances. (Multiple performances through Sunday, March 11.)
