Classic stand-up artists with 4 of the greatest filmed stand up routines presented in the Black Box. Richard Pryor, Whoopi Goldberg, Eddie Murphy and Chris Rock’s filmed concerts will be screened in the perfect environment for a stand up gig.

Eddie Murphy ruled the standup world in the 1980s. His two specials, Delirious and Raw, are among the crudest and most sensational standup acts ever recorded. Delirious became well-known as the stand-up special that contained roughly 230 uses of the word “fuck,” while Raw comes in second around the 220 mark. Eddie Murphy, 26, recorded Raw at New York City’s Felt Forum at Madison Square Garden.

Yes it’s raw, but it’s inventive genius. Hilarious.
