We gave it a B

If you can get past the ugly opening 10 minutes of gay jokes in Delirious, Eddie ?Murphy’s stand-up ?concert (which originally aired on HBO) still serves up plenty of lewd laughs. The SNL star was only 22 at the time and had an undeniable swagger, strutting on stage in his fire-engine-red leather suit. While some bits are dated, others like ”The Ice Cream Man” remain priceless. EXTRAS on the two-disc set include a recent (and not very penetrating) sit-down between Murphy and Byron Allen. B
