Don’t mind the cameras, they’re filming a movie up in here and Eddie Murphy’s the only one gonna get paid in EDDIE MURPHY: RAW. Presented in 35mm!

Now I can’t have no “curse” show, I mean I gotta throw in a few jokes in between the curses. – Eddie Murphy

Recorded at Madison Square Garden’s Felt Forum, Eddie Murphy: Raw blew up the box office, inspired a generation of comedians, and made the MPAA’s head spin with its carpet-bomb use of the f-word (223 times!). Directed by fellow comedian Robert Townsend and produced by Keenan Ivory Wayans, Raw is Murphy’s stand-up swan-song, where the comic covers his poor upbringing in Bushwick, the paranoid effect that wealth has on romance (HALF!), and the public backlash he received for telling sexist and homophobic gags.
