Killing Time

…..Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy: You know what happened? You people out there just missed a dirty joke I told!

[ Audience laughs and cheers. Eddie belts out his trademark laugh. ]

Eddie Murphy: You know what happened? They timed the show wrong, right? And they thought the show was going to be 30 seconds longer — and like now -– they don’t have no sketch or NOTHING!

[ Audience laughs hard. Eddie points to the OFF-SCREEN crew]

Eddie Murphy: How much time do I have? Eight seconds? Seven… six? Here, quick — I’m gonna play the piano!

[ Eddie sits down at The Honeydrippers’ piano and starts playing different notes. The audience cheers wildly. ]
