Eddie Griffin, 50, melts hearts dancing the two- step with mom in recent video
The American actor and comedian shared a sweet video of himself and his mother to his social media account, showing off his dancing skills to his fans.
50-year-old Eddie Griffin celebrated his milestone birthday on July 15, and decided to enjoy the previous day with family, including his mother, back in his home town of Kansas City.
The sweet clip showed Griffin and his mother doing the two-step in the lobby of Spectators, a hotel and pub in Kansas City. The mother-son duo seemed relaxed and happy as they danced around one another.
"#KansasCity what y'all know about that 2 step? Me and my Mom," the comedian captioned the video clip, with a number of hashtags attached to it.
In the footage, Griffin wore a pair of royal blue loose fitting fats, and a button-down shirt in a matching shade of blue. He also had on a pair of white shoes, and a matching white broad rimmed hat.
Meanwhile, his mother wore a pair of black pants, a white shirt, and a long flowing black and white polka dot blouse over the top. She decided to go barefoot as she enjoyed the dance with her son.
While Griffin didn't share that it was his birthday in the caption, a number of his fans remembered, and took to the comments section to wish him a special day
Another photo shared by Griffin from the night before his birthday saw him kneeling next to this mother while she relaxed in an armchair. His brother also featured in the image, as all three smiled up at the camera.
The comedian first got into the profession when his cousin pushed him to perform at an open mic comedy night in Kansas City as a dare.
Griffin had been voted class clown in high school three years in a row, but his real love was actually dance.
When he was just 16 years old, he opened his own dance studio, and before getting into comedy had been choreographing the Kansas City Chiefs half-time shows.
But when he took the stage at local comedy club Sanford and Sons, he was told he had 3 minutes. Instead, he performed off-the-cuff for 45 minutes, to huge applause.
After that night, he purchased a one-way ticket to Los Angeles to try and make it as a comedian, something that years later he will probably consider to be the best decision he ever made.
