"A couple's powerful story of how God comforts us so that we can comfort others. Anthony Griffith, a stand-up comic from Chicago's South Side, has lived on the borderline of comedy and tragedy. At the very time his career as a stand-up comedian was taking off, and he had finally achieved his dream of appearing on The Tonight Show, he was also enduring an unimaginable personal nightmare: his two-year-old daughter, Brittany Nicole, was dying from cancer. While Anthony performed under bright lights, he struggled not to succumb to the darkness of losing a child"--

"I was living every comic's dream...with a nightmare attached."

Anthony Griffith, a stand-up comic from Chicago's South Side, has lived on the borderline of comedy and tragedy. At the very time his career as a stand-up comedian was taking off, and he had finally achieved his dream of appearing on The Tonight Show, he was also enduring an unimaginable personal nightmare: his two-year-old daughter, Brittany Nicole, was dying from cancer. While Anthony performed under bright lights, he struggled not to succumb to the darkness of losing a child.

Behind the Laughter asks, When your world is falling apart, how do you keep going? It's the story of how Anthony and his wife, Brigitte, learned to endure the most painful of times and emerge on the other side of the "zombie years."

This memoir is deeply moving yet also humorous--packed with laughs as Anthony takes us from his gun-toting grandma's home to Chicago's white and black comedy clubs, then to Hollywood, and to the world of network television. The surprising twists along Anthony's path highlight the power of God that goes before us and prepares the way--a truth that later encourages Anthony and Brigitte after Brittany's death and moves them to reach out and comfort others going through similar difficulties.

With humor and deep insights into the human spirit, Behind the Laughter explores the bonds of not only parent and child but also husband and wife. While Anthony and Brigitte's story is uniquely theirs, it elicits powerful, relatable emotions and lessons that are universal and inspiring.
