Movie Info

Recorded in front of a live audience in New York City, this film features actor/comedian Eddie Murphy performing a scathing comedy routine. Eddie's uncle (Samuel L. Jackson) and other family members are lampooned in sketch segments, while Murphy largely sticks to stand-up, riffing on fellow black comedians, marriage and various racial and ethnic stereotypes, among many other topics. The concert is particularly renowned for Murphy's liberal and unrepentant use of expletives.

Audience Reviews for Eddie Murphy Raw

    Eddie Murphy: I'm sadistic. I go to the supermarkets to watch mothers lose it and beat the shit out of their kids.  "Catch him in the act. Uncensored Uncut Irresistibly..." Eddie Murphy Raw is classic Eddie Murphy. It's a standup concert filmed live in New York, where Murphy does his usual sex jokes and impersonations. Overall, the movie is a good time and has plenty of hilarious moments. I'm not going to go out on the ledge and say that this is the best standup I've ever seen or that Eddie Murphy is the best comedian ever, but he is very good. He has a stars presence on stage just as he does on the screen.  I guess there could be plenty of reasons to not like Raw if you don't want to. The jokes may be tasteless, immoral, obscene, and whatever else you want to call them; but their also good. This isn't something you'd want to show to your 11 year old son or daughter, but for adults, this comedy works and it works because of Murphy's confidence in what he's saying.  As far as these stand-up movies go, Eddie Murphy Raw is a classic. Murphy has influenced many comedians with his fast talking, hyper paced shows. He knows what will make people laugh and he executes his jokes perfectly. Well worth a look if you think classic Murphy is funny.

    One of my ALL time favorite stand-ups. This is Eddie Murphy during his prime, just about to make Coming To America. His cocky-ness makes me want to like "Delirious" just a tad more, but perfect is hard to improve upon.

    Extremely vulgar (it holds the record for most f-bombs in a film from the 1980's), but extremely hilarious, insightful, and entertaining as well. I miss the old Eddie Murphy. This films is a great reminder of how brilliant and funny he once was. It's definitely worth watching.

    Eddie Murphy is rocking out one gangster ass purple suit...I need to get me one of them shits. Pretty funny - I wasn't on the ground rolling by any means, but the standup was solid entertainment.
