Comedian Tai Griffin is one of the most comical and thought provoking comedians on the scene today. An accomplished stand-up comedian, voice over talent, radio personality and comedy writer hailing from Pittsburgh, PA now residing in Charlotte, NC.
Tai began his comedy career while as a senior in high school. Attending Peabody High School and CAPA (Creative And Performing Arts) high school by day and performing at comedy clubs at night is what helped develop Tai’s split personality image of being reserved in person and a complete fool on stage. His versatile style of comedy is candid, unfiltered and 1000% foolishness.
Tai’s credits include filling in for multi-talented actor/comedian/radio host Steve Harvey as the host of the “Hip-Hop Peacefest” shown via Pay Per View and HBO. This was an East Coast vs West Coast hip-hop concert saluting two of hip-hop’s slain icons, The Notorious BIG and Tupac Shakur. The Hip Hop Peacefest was filmed entirely on location at the world famous Apollo Theatre in NYC and at the Bob Hope Theatre in Palm Desert, CA. The “Hip Hop Peacefest” featured live performances & interviews by Jay Z, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Junior Mafia, Ice Cube and many more. It was produced by Bigger than Life Productions of Los Angeles, CA and Charlotte, NC.
In addition to HBO & Pay Per View, Tai appeared in the Hallmark movie “The Ultimate Gift” which starred “Army Wive’s” Drew Fuller and Abigail Breslin from the Halle Berry thriller “The Call”.
Tai has been blessed to share the stage on numerous comedy tours with the likes of: the Kings of Comedy’s Bernie Mac (RIP), Cedric the Entertainer and D.L. Hughley; in addition to Darren “DS” Sanders, Shang, Mike Epps, Earthquake, Tony Roberts and the Queen of Comedy Sommore just a name a few……
