Well then, Charlie, perhaps Eddie or Chappelle will apologize on your behalf -- because an apology is indeed due!
30 May 2010 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Ironically, an apology is exactly what Charlie Murphy owes anyone who watches this excruciatingly unfunny stand-up project. Murphy's material is stale and poorly-written; his timing and delivery is, to put it kindly, amateurish and off; and most disturbingly of all, Murphy fails -- big time -- to live up to the comic legacy and laugh-inducing expectations derived from his better-known little brother -- as well as his own well-deserved reputation as a hilarious cast member on the stellar "Chappelle's Show." I was saddened for the show's live audience members: they came out to the show earnestly expecting laughs from the man on stage, and he delivered none. Bottom line is: Murphy should stick to sketch projects and perhaps movies and such. But, its made blatantly clear with this troubling example: Charlie Murphy can't do stand-up! I challenge you to make it to the end of this project -- and if you do, inevitably, you'll feel disappointed and angry, frustrated for wasting 63 precious minutes of your life, and undoubtedly desirous of that aforementioned apology Murphy refuses to provide!
