Eddie Murphy was one of the best stand-up comedians in history. Unfortunately, a lot of his older material (specifically his material on gays) doesn’t carry over quite as well in these more enlightened times.
However, Murphy’s monologue about his drunken dad during a 4th of July cookout is still a classic and still one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard. Even when I first saw this when I was 13-years old, this was the bit that had me laughing the hardest. Though nowadays, I find myself laughing less and understanding his father’s laments. Seriously, I pay the bills in the motherf–ker and hey, kiss my a– if you don’t like it!!!! ‘Cos it’s my house!!!
Needless to say, not safe for work.
