Eddie Murphy kills in return to SNL

Eddie Murphy, who debuted on the show as a 19-year-old 40 years ago, hosted the last Saturday Night Live episode of the year on Saturday to the delight of many.

He brought back many of his old characters including pimp Velvet Jones, Gumby, Mr. Robinson from Mr. Robinson’s Neighbor, and Buckwheat.

Murphy opened the show with comedy greats Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, and Tracy Morgan joining him on stage, joking during his opening monologue “I have 10 kids now — 11 if you count Kevin Hart… If you had told me 30 years ago that I would be this boring stay-at-home house dad and Bill Cosby would be in jail, even I would have took that bet.” Slipping into his Cosby impersonation, Murphy said, “Who is America’s Dad now?”

Cosby famously, according to Murphy, criticized him for using profanity in his comedy routine.
