IMPRESSIONS: Remember when Eddie Murphy was funny? Wow, you ARE old, aren't you?!? This comedy album makes me very nostalgic. Hear this and I'm right back in Rustler days road tripping with Paul & Cheeks. Actually, I never actually owned the physical album back then but only a recording made by Cheeks for a Cerpts tape. It's also quite hilarious to me that Eddie Murphy does routines on racism almost simultaneously with routines on "faggots". Ah, he was very, VERY young; I suppose one might blame it on the folly of youth. Be that as it may, there is some fine comedy included on this album. Sadly, the only thing missing is "My God Is Color Blind" and "Party All the Time". But that would loom in the comedian's immediate future.
MY FAVOURITE TRACKS: Singers, Ice Cream Man/Shoe Throwin' Mothers, The Barbecue, The Fart Game, Politics/Racism, Languages, TV
FACT SHEET: COMEDIAN is Eddie Murphy's second album. The stand-up appearing on this album also was included in the HBO comedy special "EDDIE MURPHY: DELIRIOUS" which pretty much catapulted Murphy to mega-stardom.
