Eddie Griffin: E-Niggma is a hilarious stand-up comedy special featuring the renowned comedian, Eddie Griffin. This show was originally released in 2019, as part of the Showtime network's line-up of original content. The special is just shy of 60 minutes and follows Eddie Griffin as he tackles an array of topics, ranging from politics to race, and everything in between.

The name of the special, E-Niggma, is a wordplay on the term "enigma," which means "a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand." In this context, Eddie Griffin is using the term to represent himself, a comedian whose jokes may be difficult for some to understand, but still manages to captivate his audience with his witty punchlines and controversial opinions.

Throughout the special, Eddie Griffin's humor is raw, unfiltered, and unapologetic. He is known for his politically incorrect comedy, and this special is no exception. Griffin isn't afraid to name-drop and call out a variety of celebrities, politicians and public figures in his jokes. He touches on topics such as Donald Trump, the #MeToo movement, as well as American politics and race relations.

Griffin's delivery is both high-energy and engaging, making it difficult not to get caught up in his comedic rants. Not only is his delivery entertaining, but the clever way he weaves in personal stories, one-liners, and pop-culture references, is guaranteed to leave audiences laughing out loud.

One of the many wonderful interactions throughout the show is between a white, male audience member and Griffin himself. The exchange begins with Eddie addressing the crowd to find out who voted for Donald Trump in the last election. When one brave member of the audience admits they did, Griffin takes full advantage of the opportunity to use it as a way to question Trump's supporters. He probes the member with a series of thought-provoking questions, while still poking fun at him for his political leanings.

Aside from political humor and social commentary, Griffin is also known for his raunchy comedy. He's not afraid to push the boundaries, and that shows in this special. He touches on everything from sexual preferences to relationship issues, all with his signature brand of comedic shock value.

One of the greatest aspects of E-Niggma is Griffin's observations on race relations. He pokes fun at the concept of tokenism and goes on to describe examples of token black figures throughout Hollywood history. He also touches upon the use of the N-word in pop culture and offers his personal opinion on why it's still a highly controversial term. Griffin doesn't shy away from using offensive language in his comedy, but offers his own perspective on why these type of words and expressions remain problematic.

In addition to the highly impactful political and sociological commentary, Griffin still has ample opportunity to display his impressive impersonations skills, something he's highly regarded for. Throughout the special, he mimics the voices of various celebrities, including Samuel L. Jackson and Tracy Morgan, and manages to do each of them justice while still keeping his jokes on-point.

Throughout the special, Griffin also interacts with the crowd frequently. He feeds off the energy of the audience and makes use of every single moment to keep the momentum going. It's clear that he aims to dissect the current political and social climate, highlighting the absurdity that ultimately exists within our world.

In conclusion, Eddie Griffin's E-Niggma is definitely not for the faint of heart. It's a raunchy, politically incorrect, and at times offensive comedy special that is sure to cause a stir. However, for those who love edgy humor and aren't afraid to laugh at themselves, Eddie Griffin's E-Niggma is the perfect outlet. With his raw delivery and hilarious jokes, you'll find yourself laughing out loud and asking for more.
