Eddie Murphy walks the red carpet with his longtime love Paige Butcher at the 2015 Mark Twain Prize for Humor on Sunday (October 18) at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
While accepting the prize, the 54-year-old comedian broke out his Bill Cosby impression during his first stand-up act in 28 years.
“Bill has one of these,” Eddie said. “Did you all make Bill give his back? I know there was a big outcry from people, they were trying to get Bill to give his trophies back. You know you f—ed up when they want you to give you trophies back.”
“He should do one show where he just come out and talk crazy now,” Eddie added. Then, in his Bill voice he said, “I would like to talk to some of the people who feel that I should give back my motherf—ing trophies.”
Former SNL cast member Norm MacDonald took to his Twitter to explain everything that went on behind the scenes at SNL 40.
“Among many other things, this show was to be the return of Eddie Murphy.” Norm wrote. “He knew the laughs would bring the house down. Eddie Murphy knows what will work on SNL better than any one. Eddie decides the laughs are not worth it. He will not kick a man when he is down.”
