As Eddie Murphy is working on a television series based on his hugely popular Beverly Hills Cop movie franchise, some of the comedy world’s greats spent a night in Los Angeles to honor the man. Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan, Samuel L. Jackson, Arsenio Hall, Brett Ratner, Martin Lawrence and Jeffrey Katzenberg and Eddie’s brother, comedian Charlie Murphy gathered for Eddie Murphy: One Night Only, which will air on Spike TV tonight at 10 pm ET.
To properly prep you for the festivities, check out Morgan below, who explains that Eddie taught him, “I could be sexy and funny at the same time. I don’t have to choose anymore!”
In this clip, Charlie tells the crowd that his brother’s comedic genius dates way back.
