Eddie Murphy Raw



Eddie Murphy Raw (1987) is an American stand-up comedy film directed by Robert Townsend and starring Eddie Murphy. It was Murphy's second feature stand-up video, following Eddie Murphy Delirious. The 90 minute show was filmed in New York City's Felt Forum, the venue in the Madison Square Garden complex now called The Theater at Madison Square Garden. According to The-Movie-Times.com, the film grossed a total of $50,504,000.

At the time of its release, Eddie Murphy Raw contained the most uses of the word "fuck" ever in a feature-length film, surpassing Scarface. It remained so until the release of Goodfellas in 1990.
