Comedian and actor Eddie Griffin, best known as Eddie Sherman in Malcolm & Eddie, took to Instagram to share a video of himself dancing with his mother.


The recording started portraying the actor – who was wearing bright blue pants, matching long-sleeved shirt, white shoes, and a white hat – holding his mother’s hand while making some smooth footwork following the rhythm of the song.

Doris Thomas, Eddie’s mother, was wearing dark pants, a white shirt, and a long, semi-see-through, dark blue robe with a white flower design. One of the aspects that impressed more people was how good they danced. It was just as if they rehearsed it.

Eddie captioned his post asking the people in Kansas City what they knew about that two-step, the type of dance he was doing, and pointed out that his partner was his ‘queen’ mother.


As soon as the actor uploaded that recording, his fans and followers took to the comment section to share their thoughts.

One of them was Instagram user @n7cky3, who admitted that Eddie got his dance moved from Doris.


User Wesley Adair added that the fact that Eddie was two-step dancing with his mother was ‘so cool.’ Finally, @natural_girl2 pointed out that there was nothing similar to a mother and son bond.

That video was uploaded on July 15, 2018, the exact day when Eddie tuned 50 years old. However, it was recorded the day before in the lobby of Spectators hotel and pun in his hometown of Kansas City.


Even if dancing the way Doris did is not an easy task, she did it all barefoot. Thankfully, Eddie dances pretty well, so he didn’t step on his mother’s feet. The mother-son duo looked relaxed and happy as they danced around one another.

That was not the only post made by Eddie showing how he and his family celebrated his pre-birthday.


The actor later shared a photo portraying himself kneeling next to Doris while she was peacefully sitting in an armchair. Eddie’s brother was next to her also posing for the camera.

Finally, Eddie shared another two-media slideshow displaying himself with his mother, who was looking at him somehow surprised. The second image showed the actor next to his uncle.


As Celebritist previously reported, Eddie got his first gig as a comedian thanks to his cousin, who pushed him to perform at an open mic comedy night in Kansas City as part of a dare.

While he was supposed to be on the stage of the comedy club Sanford and Sons for only three minutes, his performance was so good that he was 45 minutes receiving a huge ovation.


Even though being funny was natural for him, he really wanted to be a dancer. At the age of 16, Eddie opened his own dance studio and worked choreographing the Kansas City Chiefs half-time shows.

A couple of days after that show ended, he bought a one-way ticket to Los Angeles to start his career as a comedian. It was probably the best career-related decision he has done in his life.
