Eddie Murphy has contributed immensely to the comedy industry in Hollywood and it is no surprise that the 54 year old is being honored.
Murphy who became a success in the 80s has been part of some of the biggest comedy movies produced in Hollywood. His movie Beverly Hills Cop ranks as one of the highest grossing movies in American of all times.
And just in case you’re a 90s baby and you don’t remember Coming To America and Beverly Hills Cop, then you must remember Nutty Professor which is by far one of the most popular comedies of the 90s.
With all of the success Mr Murphy has recorded, it was no surprise he was honored with the Mark Twain prize for humor.
Holding his pretty girlfriend with him, Eddie Murphy opted for an all black look contrasting the bold red color worn by his much younger girlfriend.
Some of the other stars at the event include Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock, Trevor Noah and Eddie Murphy’s co star in Coming To America, Arsenio Hall.
