Comedian Anthony Griffith tells an honest, poignant story at the US Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen in 2003. The title is “The Best of Times, The Worst of Times” and it will take your breath away.
Griffith touches on many issues core to us here at The Good Men Project: Fatherhood, saving face, being a provider, having to always be strong, anger, and issues within the Black community that keep men from asking for help.
Upworthy.com sums up what makes this so exceptional:
It’s so important to remember that the people we idolize aren’t the two-dimensional, easily digestible caricatures that we see of them in the media.
Griffith is an incredibly talented comedian, see some of his more traditionally laugh-out-loud comedy below. Follow Anthony Griffith on Twitter @MrLaffalot.
