[Bill Cosby has called Eddie to complain about bad language in Eddie’s act]
Eddie Murphy: Now I can’t have no ‘curse’ show, I mean I gotta throw in a few jokes in between the curses, I can’t come out and go “Hello! Filth flar’n filth, motherfucker, dick, pussy, snot, and shit. Good night! Suck my dick!”
Eddie Murphy: Raw was released in theaters on this day 32 years ago (December 18, 1987)
There’s something about the ice cream truck that makes kids lose it. And they can hear that shit from ten blocks away. They don’t hear their mothers calling but they hear that motherfucking ice cream truck.
[After Bill Cosby called Eddie to complain about bad language in Eddie’s act]
Richard [Pryor] said, “The next time the motherfucker call, tell him I said, “Suck *my* dick.” I don’t give a fuck. Whatever the fuck make the people laugh, say that shit. Do the people laugh when you say what you say?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Do you get paid?” I said, “Yes.” He said, “Well, tell Bill I said have a Coke and a smile and shut the fuck up. Jello pudding-eating motherfucker.”
Happy 57th birthday to Eddie Murphy!!!
