The actor/comedian will be in Louisville at the Brown Theatre on Saturday, July 21st. In February, Showtime premiered his fifth stand-up special, Eddie Griffin: Undeniable and now fans can see him live on stage.
In 1990, Griffin took a dare to get up in front of an audience in a comedy club and do three minutes of stand up. Needless to say some 45 minutes later the choreographer for the Kansas City Chiefs half-time shows hung up his dance shoes and headed to Los Angeles with a one-way ticket to pursue his gift to make people laugh. Some 28 years later, Griffin continues to make people laugh on television and venues across the country.
Tickets for Eddie Griffin’s Louisville show at the Brown Theatre start at $45. They go on sale at 10:00 am on Friday, May 18th.

(Louisville, KY) Loyal fans of the comedian/actor Katt Williams waited for hours in Louisville, KY at the KFC Yum! Center just to find out that he would not be doing his show. Fans had hoped that “The Conspiracy Theory” tour would give them a little laughter on Saturday night but instead thousands of fans sat and waited patiently for Williams to take the stage which never happened.
Louisville had a lot of events going on tonight from Zeta Phi Beta conference with celebrity member Sheryl Underwood as a guest, Phi Beta Sigma conference, Motown the Musical and the University of Louisville Red-White football game as well as other events. So, many guests to the city had decided to make Williams’ show apart of their visit.
Here’s the message the KFC Yum! Center sent in regards to Katt Williams’ show:
“Due to circumstances beyond the KFC Yum! Center’s control, Katt Williams will be unable to perform at tonight’s KFC Yum! Center show as originally scheduled. All guests may request a refund at the original point of purchase.”
