Storyline

Comedian Eddie Murphy brings his proudly raunchy comedy act to a sold-out stadium and pontificates in his own vulgarly hilarious fashion on such subjects as sexual orientation, puberty, dating, disciplinarian mothers, ice cream trucks, and the personality traits of certain singers.

I was at this show's taping back in '83...
26 November 2003 | by grichmanSee all my reviews

I was 16 when my parents took me to see Eddie Murphy live in concert in Washington DC at Constitution Hall back in 1983. Unfortunately, since then I have never seen a live comedy performance come close to this one.

There is one point in the show where Eddie Murphy drops his microphone and starts laughing at what some person in the audience yells. Interestingly enough, you cannot hear it in the video. However, I know what was said by the audience because I was there.

On one side of the theatre a woman yelled, "Do Gumby!".

On the other side of the theatre, a guy yelled real loud, "Shut Up Bitch!!!".

This is what made Eddie drop his microphone and start laughing. You heard it here first. I am sure that if you asked Eddie himself, he would remember because it was too funny.
