[VIDEO] Throwback Thursday: Eddie Murphy
When most people think of Eddie Murphy now, they think children-movie actor or sell out. What they don’t realize is back in the 80’s, the guy was a comedy giant. 18 years old, joins the cast of Saturday Night Live and produced the highest selling concert movie of all time, Raw.
I was lucky enough to grow up with a best friend whose Dad made it his mission for us to understand what Eddie Murphy had done before Raw. Not like it mattered, we were 11 then, but even at that age I was able to appreciate was ‘good’ comedy was. Oh and imitate it… Kids are good at imitating what adults like to get a laugh. So we would do Eddie Murphy’s “Ice Cream Man” a lot.
