Comedians spend years honing their stage persona, but when all-star comic Anthony Griffith tells the story of his life as a comedian and as a father, not even he can keep it together. To be honest, I couldn’t either when I watched this video. 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. I’ve seen some breakdowns before, and this was the first one that felt real.
Anthony Griffith’s heartbreaking story was recently featured on Upworthy, so we thought it’d be a good time to share it again with you.
