Eddie Murphy: Delirious
Taped live and in concert at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. in August, 1983, Eddie Murphy: Delirious captures Eddie Murphy's wild and outrageous stand-up comedy act, which he performed in New York and eighteen other cities across the U.S. to standing-room-only audiences. Eddie's comedy was groundbreaking, completely new, razor sharp and definitely funny.Eddie Murphy pontificates in his own vulgarly hilarious fashion on everything from bizarre sexual fantasies to reliving the family barbecue, and is peppered with Eddie's one-of-a-kind wit. Laugh along as Eddie reminiscences of hot childhood days and the ice cream man intermixed with classic vocal parodies of top American entertainers.Experience Eddie Murphy at his best, live and red hot! Delirious! Uncensored and Uncut!
You know, I don't remember Delirious being this fucked up in the first 10-15 minutes.
By fucked up, I mean homophobic. Now I won't hold it against Eddie Murphy for comments he made +30 years ago, but hearing that shit now just makes the show feel even more dated than it already is. I get that times were way different back in 1983 compared to 2015, but those kind of comments just sound obnoxious and ridiculous when you go back and hear them now.
Other than that, everything else is fine. Just as funny as I remember; if not more. Stuff like the ice cream bit and especially the heckler bit are just as hilarious as I remember. However, fair…
Viewed on Netflix
I saw this as a kid back in 1984.
This shit was iconic.
This could be the most reverberated comedy routine on earth.
15 minutes of pig-ignorant shit followed by 45 minutes of stuff not as funny as Raw. Yes, I'm aware that I watched these the wrong way round but the point still stands.
I am aware that plenty has been written and said about Murphy's opening routine in this set and I am aware that he apologised, somewhat belatedly, for its content, but the rest of the show isn't really as hot on quality as you might expect. Several routines start out funny but then end up being driven into the ground (such as the ice-cream bit).
Basically, I don't think it's ever a good sign when the biggest laugh of the show comes from an audience member telling a heckler "SHUT UP BITCH!" I think that says a lot, really.
A week or two ago I was listening to a radio show on my way home from work and the two hosts were trying to think of who is the best comedian turned actor. For them it was of course Eddie Murphy but they wanted to figure out who came in second. This wasn't the first time I'd heard these guys praise Eddie Murphy's stand-up, and I have definitely heard praises for it for years. Sadly, for me, my knowledge of Eddie Murphy is Dr. Doolittle and The Nutty Professor. I only watched Beverly Hills Cop recently and, until now, had never seen any of his stand-up. So, how good was he?
For starters, I'm convinced that, like talk shows,…
Quite simply put.
If you can tough it through the opening 'faggot' jokes, it's a pretty solid set.
"Your wife is a bigfoot isn't she, Gus?"
Want a lick? SIKE!
As his "career" grinds on (and on and on) it's often difficult to remember a time when Eddie Murphy could actually make us laugh.
A time before NORBIT, a time before DADDY DAY CARE, when you could put your faith in Eddie, and be repaid in laughter.
This film serves a similar purpose to that of the pyramids; an eternal reminder of greatness, now gone forever.
I laughed so hard, I cried.
In the middle of the night on Netflix after an aborted attempt to watch "Samurai I: Musashi Miyamoto".
I didn't find this particularly funny...times and tastes have changed alright.
if this is the one he does the Stevie Wonder impression on I literally peed my pants laughing
Recuerdo que Chris Rock en Everybody hates Chris lo cita como una de sus influencia más fuertes, peeeeero cómo no hacerlo. Ácido, irreverente, pero muy inteligente y certero, como me gusta el maldito humor. Impresionante. *Black Power*
This is one of my favorite comedy specials of all time. Eddie's strength lies in just how amazingly good he is at impressions. I was thinking to myself while watching that so many of his bits wouldn't work if his impressions weren't totally spot on.
No sabía que Eddie Murphy había sido gracioso alguna vez.
