Uncensored. Uncut. Irresistibly....
After achieving fame with Saturday Night Live and Beverly Hills Cop, Eddie Murphy released a film version of one of his live stand-up performances. He mainly focuses on the topics of divorce and relations between the sexes, but also goes into some of the problems he's encountered because of fame, including offended listeners and fans who continually greet him with his unprintable catch phrases.

I've always thought that Eddie Murphy was funny in his movies. I had never seen his standup before so I figured I'd give it a shot. I guess this is from a little bit too long ago. The entire show was impressions of people I'm not really familiar with, including a Bill Cosby bit that I didn't understand in the slightest.
I appreciated the foreigners story talking about how people from other countries only understood his swear words, so they come up yelling "fuck you eddie murphy!" with a big smile on their face. Other than that I think this hasn't aged well and I don't have a proper background to understand his jokes.
