Flashback Friday – Eddie Murphy/Randy Watson - "The Greatest Love Of All"

It's awards season in Hollywood so I'd post a film related clip.

Eddie is known for his family/board comedies now but back in the day he was hilarious. One of my former bosses brought in the Best of Eddie Murphy from SNL and we were on the floor.

"Delirious"? Priceless. His nine minute description of Uncle Gus and Aunt Bunny (Why you always burn down my mfing yard Gus?), at a family bb-q is one of the funniest monologues I have ever heard.

Here's a short clip from "Coming To America". Eddie plays several roles in the film and here is one of his characters.

Have a great weekend.

Ha...I referenced the Sexual Chocolate clap today when the topic of John McCain's apology for voting against MLK Day in Arizona at an NAACP conference last year came up.

I forgot how over-the-top funny this movie is.

yes I crack up anytime someone makes a "Sexual Chocolate reference"

Arsenio just starred in "Black Dynamite" a movie that was a big hit at Sundance.
