Eddie Murphy's legendary stand-up routines are both vulgar and hilarious, and this one is no exception. Murphy turns relatable stories from his childhood, poverty, and family into comedic gold. He also turns 1980s pop culture icons of the time into fodder for amusing and convincing impressions. Mr. T, Michael Jackson and James Brown are just a few of the notable names Murphy can portray with spot-on accuracy. High energy, singing, and raucous jokes are the hallmarks of this performance as well as some raunchy subject matter and foul language. While not a family-friendly stand-up routine, this is a legendary and often-quoted powerhouse performance of Murphy's.
