Eddie Murphy

He is an actor, voice actor, comedian and singer known worldwide for his roles in movies such as “The Nutty Professor”, “Coming to America”, and “Meet Dave”. Eddie was raised in the Bushwick neighborhood of New York City by his mother Lillian, who was a telephone operator, and initially his father named Charles Edward Murphy but who died in 1969 at the age of 29, and was a policeman, comedian, and actor.

His parents split when Eddie was three years old and Charles died when Eddie was eight after being stabbed by a woman who was allegedly in love with him. Eddie and his older brother Charlie had to live in foster care for a year after Lillian became ill, and Eddie credits the time spent in foster care to the development of his sense of humor.

He launched his career on 9 July 1976, when he performed at a talent show impersonating famous singer Al Green. He was instantly loved by the audience, and so then went on to perform in clubs around New York City, actually skipping school to do so. He released his first self-titled stand-up comedy special in 1982, and his second – “Delirious” – in 1983.

Eddie made his debut movie appearance in 1982 in the film “48 Hrs” which was a hit, then starred in “Trading Places” in 1983 alongside Dan Aykroyd, another hit and Eddie’s first collaboration with the director John Landis, who would later direct “Coming to America” in 1988, and “Beverly Hills Cop III” in 1994, both of which Eddie starred in.
