Eddie Murphy Raw
Release Date: January 1st, 1987
R|1 hr. 31 min.
Recorded in front of a live audience in New York City, this film features actor/comedian Eddie Murphy performing a scathing comedy routine. Eddie's uncle (Samuel L. Jackson) and other family members are lampooned in sketch segments, while Murphy largely sticks to stand-up, riffing on fellow black comedians, marriage and various racial and ethnic stereotypes, among many other topics. The concert is particularly renowned for Murphy's liberal and unrepentant use of expletives.
