Comedian Eddie Griffin crashed a Ferrari Enzo sportscar worth about $1.5 million practicing driving for a charity race. Who's laughing now?

...That's right, no body! OH MY GOD.

I know, I never heard of him either.

Then again I guess the only black comedians I know are Chris Rock and... that other guy.

I guess Martin Lawrence and Eddie Murphey count too. :smile: See! I know three!

Haha, it was someone else's car. I wonder how that conversation sounded. :cool:

I don't think he's been in many movies, just the 'deuce bigalow' ones as said in the article. Definitely not all that popular.

Oh come on! Is Cosby not considered black?

Cosby is too old school. Don't even try to mention Chicken Heart. Most people think Cosby got his start doing the Cosby Show.

Eddie Griffin is an OK comedian. He did "Undercover Brother" and "Deuce Bigalow." He's not great, but not bad.

It's a shame about the car. I wonder how that producer is going to explain that one to his insurance people.

Insurance? If that car was insured at all, the insurance was surely voided the moment that an untrained driver took it onto a race track. :bugeye:

Me neither. I guess he must be someone worth enough to put behind the wheel of a $1.5M car without training though. :rolleyes: I wonder if they just dock that from his pay, or what? :uhh: :rofl: I'm assuming he was okay?

His movies are terrible, but I think his standup comedy is actually quite good. Not good enough to be wrecking ferraris on any regular basis though...

The guy was renting it for £20k a day from someone else.
That's some HEAVY rental fee!

That's a cool car. Never heard of it before. 0-60 in 2.5 seconds? Whoof!

That's the most amazing car there is, powerwise, at least! ~1000bhp, if I remember correctly. And there is this whole episode of BBC's Top Gear where Jeremy drives this beast in a race against the other two presenters who use air, sea, train, etc. to reach from one point in Europe to somewhere in London.

Those pictures make me sick! I hope he crashed it after renting it MANY times.
He'd only had it a week. :grumpy:
