Eddie Murphy 'One Night Only' on Spike

Spike’s tribute to comedy legend Eddie Murphy airs tonight and it’s looking quite entertaining. (Note: Eddie is not dead!) The show, according to press notes, will “pay homage to Murphy’s journey from a 15-year-old aspiring comedian, to the record-breaking ‘Raw,’ which remains the highest grossing stand-up film of all time, to his indelible characters and impressions from ‘Saturday Night Live’ including Buckwheat, Gumby, Mr. Robinson and James Brown.” The two hour special event will include short films, musical performances, sketch comedy and will culminate in an appearance by Murphy.

Eddie Murphy: One Night Only also boasts one hell of a lineup: Tracey Morgan, Jamie Foxx, Tyler Perry, Keenan Ivory Wayans, Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson, Arsenio Hall, Martin Lawrence, and Charlie Murphy are just a few of the guest that will appear on the program.

“Eddie Murphy: One Night Only” will air tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 10/9c on Spike. The network will air Beverly Hills Cop and Coming To America ahead of the telecast. Check your local listings.
