The megastar entertainers were friends, though Michael Jackson was often the butt of Eddie Murphy jokes in his legendary stand-up shows, "Delirious" and "Raw"

Two people owned the ’80’s in entertainment: One is obviously the King of Pop, the late Michael Jackson. The other is Edward Regan Murphy of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Eddie Murphy is, irrefutably, one of the greatest box-office attractions in the history of the motion picture industry.  His meteoric rise from being a young teen comedian in New York City into a magnetic television personality and eventually a box-office blockbuster machine is dumbfounding, especially when you pause to take inventory of his spectacular career.
