“ok team, i’ve been thinking about this for a while and i believe i have the perfect idea for our campaign. let’s get some white text, some red text and a cracked out adrogynous kid; throw them all onto a billboard and call it a day. WHO’S ON BOARD?”
“I’m sadistic. I go to the supermarkets to watch mothers lose it and beat the shit out of their kids.”
People don’t realize how funny Eddie Murphy was. After gaining fame through SNL, at 22 he came out with “Eddie Murphy’s Delirious” which was performed to a sold out theater in D.C. He followed it up with “Eddie Murphy Raw” and at 26 made some of the funniest jokes of the 80’s to a sold out venue in Madison Square Garden. The recording of Raw went on to be the #1 stand up concert film of all time.
This cat was performing to huge sold out venues in his early 20’s. He was a comedic powerhouse. Next time you want to hate on Murphy for “Pluto Nash” or “Norbit” go watch “Eddie Murphy Raw”.
