Movie Info

Shortly before the end of Eddie Murphy - Delirious the irrepressible Murphy points out the irony of his appearing before an SRO audience at Washington DC's Constitution Hall, the same establishment which refused to allow black opera star Marian Anderson to give a concert in 1939. Murphy may not be in the same style of performance as Anderson, but no one can deny that back in 1983 he galvanized an audience as few other comedians could. Occasionally there's a PG bit involving Eddie's family, but for the most part the humor is raunchy -- as evidenced by Murphy's routine about Ralph Kramden being "serviced" by Ed Norton.more

...while the movie does seem to have its fans, there's just no overlooking the general lack of laughs...

There's a glee and an innocence to the 22-year-old comic cutting loose, recklessly slashing up the world with his razor wit. Delirious is aptly titled, and still shocking after all these years.

Esta performance absolutamente genial é uma prova inconteste de como o "politicamente correto" destruiu a comédia contemporânea.

Audience Reviews for Eddie Murphy Delirious

This is a plain and simple stand up performance from Murphy. He's on the stage, mic in hand, looking out at the audience. No special effects to turn him into multiple characters, no silly plot, just jokes. So, realize that before watching. You get the experience of seeing a comedy legend in his prime. This is a hilarious routine and I was laughing the whole time. If you feel that his movies aren't funny any more, or aren't a fan of his, please go find this movie. You'll easily be converted to a fan. If you wonder why I didn't give it 5 stars, that is simply because it isn't among the greatest stand up movies that I've seen. That doesn't matter much, though, because this is a perfect display of Murphy's talent. I recommend it.

Eddie Murphy's Delirious delivers raunchy gag after raunchy gag and it never runs out of steam. They could have thrown in a few behind the scenes clip here and there and then clipped back to the stand up, which I felt would have been more appealing, but it doesn't really matter in such cases. This movie still soars with laughs, and has Eddie Murphy at his best. Hilarious Show!
