This is the funniest stand up I have ever seen and I think it is the funniest I will ever see. If you don't choke with laughter at the absolute hilarity,
then this is just not your cup of tea. But I honestly don't know anyone who has seen this that hasn't liked it. It is now 17 years later and my friends and
I still quote everything from Goonie Goo Goo to the fart game, Aunt Bunnie to the ice cream man, Ralph and Ed to GET OUT!! There are just so many individual
and collective skits of hilarity in here that if you honestly haven't seen this film then you are missing out on one of the best stand-ups ever. Take any of
Robin Williams, Damon Wayans, The Dice, George Carlin or even the greats like Richard Pryor or Red Foxx and this will surpass it. I don't know how or where
Murphy got some of his material but it works. That is what it comes down to. It is funny as hell.
Could you imagine how this show must have shocked people that were used to Eddie doing Buckwheat and Mr. Rogers and such on SNL? If you listen to the
audience when he cracks his first joke or when he says the F-word for the first time, they are in complete shock.
His first time he says the F-word is when he does the skit about Mr. T being a homosexual.
" Hey boy, hey boy. You look mighty cute in them jeans. Now come on over here, and f@** me up the ass!"
The crowd erupts in gales of laughter. No one was expecting the filthy mouth that he unleashed on them. But the results were just awesome. I have never been
barraged with relentless comedy the way I was in this stand-up. In fact, the next time my stomach hurt so much from laughing wasn't until 1999 when I saw
SOUTH PARK: BIGGER LONGER AND UNCUT . That comedy was raw and unapologetic and it went for the jugular, as did DELIRIOUS. I don't think it is possible to
watch this piece of comic history and not laugh. It is almost twenty years later and it is still the funniest damn thing on video.
" I took your kids fishing last week. And I put the worm on the hook and the kids put the fishing pole back in the boat and slammed their heads in the water
for two minutes Gus. Normal kids don't do shit like that Gus. Then they started movin their heads around like this and the m****f***** come up with fish.
Then they looked at each other and said Goonie Goo Goo! I said can you believe this f****n shit?!"
See it again and be prepared to laugh your freakin ass off!

[size=5][color=red]Eddie Murphy Raw (1987)[/color][/size]
[color=yellow]After achieving fame with Saturday Night Live and Beverly Hills Cop, Eddie Murphy released a film version of one of his live stand-up performances. He
mainly focuses on the topics of divorce and relations between the sexes, but also goes into some of the problems he's encountered because of fame, including
offended listeners and fans who continually greet him with his unprintable catch phrases[/color]
Eddie Murphy raw is good. Some might even say that it is very good. Unfortunately, the bar was set so unbelievably high with his previous offering (Eddie
Murphy Delirous) that it only comes off as mildly dissapointing. If you haven't seen either, you should consider watching Raw first, even though it was
chronolgically second in the series. Raw is funny at times, but the pacing was off. Eddie seems tired in his delivery, and the camera work was a bit shoddy.
The camera is zoomed in too far for most of the show and plays catch-up with Eddie for the duration of the set. Part of Eddie's genius is how he uses his
whole body to convey his comedy, and the camera robs us of this performance by only showing him from his chest and up.
You can also tell that Eddie has grown up a bit from watching this. He is talking more about relationships and life instead of reliving memories from his
childhood (which was the really, really funny stuff from Delirious).
I don't want to discourage anyone from watching this, as it is still one of the best stand up routines of all time. I would put it at number 7 or 8 of all
time, but only because Delirious takes up the top 6 spots (yes, it is that funny).[/color]
