The ND invites moviegoers to their weekly Free Film Tuesdays event that includes a line-up of cheap beers, local standup comedians, and Eddie Murphy. On Tuesday, Jan. 15 Roots of Comedy Cinema present Eddie Murphy: Delirious.
Roots of Comedy Cinema is hosted by Eric Harrelson followed by special guests that include local comedians. Along with live and on screen stand-up performances, a full menu of $2 beers and two-for-one hand-tossed pizzas can accompany your night.
It’s no surprise that Eddie Murphy pushes the boundaries. Recently we’ve heard his distinctive voice in the film Shrek where he plays Donkey, we’ve watched him try to utter less than a thousands words in the film A Thousand Words, and yet again we’ve seen him portray more than one character in Norbit. If you had to select a few of Eddie Murphy’s breakthrough performances some will say it happened during his time on Saturday Night Live, his debut film career and his stand-up comedy career.
In the stand-up performance Eddie Murphy: Delirious, Murphy showcases his funny yet controversial material. He uses pop culture, common stereotypes and daily encounters as his material. Most of the topics are also unconventional and at the time (’83) most of it was unspoken.
The ND is located at 501 Brushy St., next to the IH-35 frontage road. The building is located on the corner of the road. Doors open at 7 p.m and the show starts at 8 p.m. There is no cover. Beverages are $2 and sold to 21+ attendees. For more information on the event be sure to checkout the ND‘s website. Below is a clip of Eddie Murphy: Delirious.
