The Best of Eddie Murphy- Saturday Night Live

This video combined dozens of the finest sketches that our colleagues across the water have produced. Murphy displays a genius combining content, delivery and timing, making a mockery of his 20 or so years. Like those rare CDs that you listen to without fear of album-fillers, the variety and quality of these sketches is second to none. Characters such as Velvet Jones, Buckwheat and Mr. Robinson remain fresh and damn funny- and remember that these were made twenty years ago. Similarly to his early films, Murphy retains those vital abilities to laugh at life and laugh at himself. Sketches such as 'Black History Minute', 'Guy Talk' and 'James Brown is Annie' are testament to his unique talents.

You'll get to see Eddie Murphy with a reggae band, in front of an all white audience, sing a song called "K-ll the Wh-te People." You'll see him imitating Jessie Jackson, singing a song called "Don't Let Me Down, H-mietown." You'll see him in a skit called "Cotton Land," along with Stevie Wonder, brilliantly mocking liberal wh-te folks' demeaning patronizing of bl-cks. You'll see him playing James Brown, who is in turn playing Little Orphan Annie on broad way. You will see all these things, and much more. If you were offended by the Chappelle Show, chances are good you'll be offended by this tape. So, of course, I gleefully recommend it.
