This is ONE of the funniest stand-up acts you will ever see!! There's only one better than this, and that's Delirious! This man is a comic genius, and also one of the best impersonators I have ever seen before! His Richard Pryor impersonation is DEAD ON and one of the funniest parts! It's about time they released it on DVD and I can't wait to enjoy it again and again. If you're on the fence, trust me, this is well worth your time and effort and money! And if you find this funny, go and get Delirious!! "Hey Boy.....Hey Boy...you look mighty cute in them jeans....now come on ova here....and..!" FRIGGIN' HILARIOUS!

I have been watching RAW for years now & if it's possible, it just gets FUNNIER & FUNNIER! There once was a time when I could recite it from beginning to end. Like it's been said, it's got MAJOR potty-mouth going on, but with Eddie, you know that already, right? If I had to have a favorite part, I think it'd have to be 'Momma's green pepper burger' ("There ain't no green pepper in McDonalds!" "What you need eggs for?") Please for the love of Pete, if you haven't seen this already (which I absolutely CANNOT believe) it is a definite must...OH YEAH, WHY IS THIS NOT OUT ON DVD YET!?!?!?!? Get with it people!

Not only does this guy not know anything about comedy, but obviously has no sense at all, since he agrees with Leonard Maltin. While I'll say that I liked "Delirious" more than "Raw," they are both utter classics. I can watch them a near infinate amount of times, or just listen to his 3 comedy cd's. New Mexico man says that all Raw is, is Eddie using the F-word a lot. Well, New Mexico, have you seen any comedy inthe last 30 years? all the comedians use the F-word too much. But the difference with "Raw" is that it is used in context, and it doesn't dampen the effect of the rest of the comedy. New Mexico man should consider going back and reviewing "Raw" and maybe trying to look around on Amazon auctions for a sense of humor

This is Eddie at his finest. "Delirious" was great, but "Raw" is better. It's so good, no video store in Memphis has it because all the copies have been stolen or worn out.

I was born a year after Raw came out and it's crazy because I can relate with the topics in this standup today. You cant really compare Eddie Murphy to Richard Pryor or any of the other great comedians before him because he basically tells you that he loves them and he wanted to be on their level. Some people criticize Raw as if Eddie Murphy is bragging about being the greatest comedian ever and no other will ever be as good as him and that's not what this standup is about at all. Eddie's childhood stands out most and you even hear stories of times him and Charlie had to go through.

I can relate with his mom making those ghetto burgers instead of taking him to McDonalds like he wanted and I'm sure I'm not the only one with those memories. How can you not love the stories of his tipsy father who told his wife she was on punishment and wasn't allowed to go outside or how he had a lego dinner one night. Sure Raw can be controversial at times but what comedian isn't so don't watch this if you have virgin ears. At the very beginning you get a treat to see upcoming stars you'll recognize play a young Eddie and his family at a get-together. It shows how he started on his trip to being a comedian.

I'm sure Delirious is hilarious and I haven't had the pleasure of seeing it since it's not on DVD but I'm sure Eddie isn't trying to compete against himself because it's entertainment so you can enjoy it. When watching Raw try to enjoy it and not waste time by comparing everything or trying to figure out what's better. That's probably a huge reason why some people didn't like because they did everything except watch the show. I think Raw is a classic that everyone should see but only for the love of comedy.

In the same tradition of raunchy stand up comedy kings such as Richard Pryor and Red Foxx, Eddie Murphy's comedy pokes fun at many groups and celebrities. Filmed at the height of Eddie's status as the world's biggest film star (while on contract with Paramount), "Raw" is an hour and a half of hysterical impersonations and skits.
Written by comedy star/director Keenan Ivory Wayans ("Scary Movie"; "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka"; television's "In Living Color") and directed by Robert Townsend ("Meteor Man"; "Hollywood Shuffle"), Raw's highlights include Eddie's trip to San Francisco (where he is greeted at the aiport by flamboyant gay men), his trouble with women, and celebrity put downs.
The most memorable skit in this film probably has to be Eddie's imaginary wedding to an African tribal woman who gets corrupted by American women upon her arrival to the U.S. "Unfoofoo" (his African wife's name) and Eddie's discussion of how he met her made me laugh out loud. Truly, only a comedy genius could have thought of such a funny skit.
Although not a film for young kids due to its' use of foul language and discussion of sexual situations, the film showcased Murphy at his best, long before his string of family oriented films ("Dr. Doolittle" "Nutty Professor"). While there is a new king when it comes to raunchy comedy nowadays (Chris Rock) Eddie still remains one of the best. "Raw" is a showcase of great comedic writing and performance.
