Take a front-row centre seat for the hottest show in town and the hottest comedian in recent entertainment history. And discover that Eddie Murphy's stand-up comedy performance is one standout comedy event.
Coming To America (Dir. John Landis, 1988): Eddie Murphy is a king of comedy and in John Landis' Coming To America, Murphy is also the Prince of Comedy - a very wealthy and pampered African prince who comes to America in search of a bride. Accompanied by his closest companion (Arsenio Hall), Murphy quickly finds a job, new friends, new digs, new enemies - and lots of trouble. Keep an eye out for both Murphy and Hall in some unforgettable cameo roles!
Trading Places (Dir. John Landis, 1983): Eddie Murphy established himself as a comedy superstar in his role as streetwise hustler Billy Ray Valentine. Fellow Saturday Night Live alumnus Dan Aykroyd co-stars as Louis Winthorpe III, a wealthy investment executive at Duke Brothers, a Wall Street firm. The fun begins when the rich and greedy Duke Brothers (Don Ameche and Ralph Bellamy) wager a bet over whether born loser Valentine could become as successful as the priggish Winthorpe if circumstances are reversed.
The Dukes have the money to make this happen, but when Valentine and Winthorpe catch on they arrange for a rich and riotous payback!
