Are you old enough to remember when Eddie Murphy was actually funny?

I was watching Raw on Comedy Central last night (uncut) and I forgot how hilarious Eddie Murphy used to be before he turned into Doctor Doomealittle.

What happened to him? Was it all downhill after the transvestite prostitute?

    I'm old enough to remember a lot of things I forgot. Like Kim Hays (Kim Hughes...As the World Turns) and Michael Zaslow (Roger Thorpe...Guiding Light) both being in the original Star Trek series.

    OMG - that was & still is one of the funniest things I ever saw from Eddie Murphy! My personal fave on that tape was when he talked about his grandma.......

    "Baby - what time is it? Can you get me a sweater? Baby - why you put yo d*ck in the sink? That's nasty!!"

    Gotta love him back then, that's for sure.

    Hahaha... now that's a good one... I actually saw him performing in a little club in Washington DC in 1982 called The Bayou... where he pointed to me and my G/F at the time and proceeded to verbally assault me... all in good nature of course. Then I saw an oddly similar performance he did in The Nutty Professor movie where his character Buddy Love assaults Dave Chappelle's: Reggie the stand-up comedian !

    Yes, I remember when he was funny,

    The stuff he did with "Buckwheat" was awesome.

    I reckon talent burns out just like everything else.

    Yes, I remember the fart game and GI Joe underwater...and it was frickin' hilarious.

    Source(s): Beverly Hills Cop 3 was his demise and Fonzie's shark.

    Yes when he made 'Another 48 Hrs , Beverly Hills Cop , Trading Places & Coming To America'. He was younger his hair was nappier and he was very funny. I still love the movies i mentioned above. I think these were his best films to date and classics that people will always remember.
