Eddie Murphy’s First Appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” – 1982.

One of my favorite things about the invention of “video tape”, or any type of recorded video, is that we can look back through a window in our past on so many different levels. This standup set was performed in 1982, and if it were done today it would not have the same reaction, which is not to say that it’s not funny (I laughed), culture and people change. I love a great comedian, and I love watching them grow and change.
