Griffin on advice give to him by his idol, legendary comedian Richard Pryor: "He told me about the temptation of money and he said a lot of people will try to water down my comedy, but I'm not worried about being tempted. Money isn't that important to me. I've panhandled before and I can panhandle again." --quoted in Orange County Register, August 25, 1996.

"Being poor gets you thinking quicker. If we were well off, I probably wouldn't have made the moves that quick; I would have had access to everything and used nothing. You got access to nothing, you want to use everything." --quoted in Daily News, Monday April 12, 1999.
