Eddie Murphy Raw

August 15th, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

It’s the final day of the Hulu Days of Summer, where we introduced new movies, TV shows, or exclusive web content (Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog, we’re looking at you) to our site each weekday. We want to thank everyone that watched, commented and shared any of the videos we featured over the last 10 weeks. Our content team has worked hard to bring more quality videos to you during the summer, normally a slow season for new content.

Today’s feature is Eddie Murphy Raw, a film from the great American stand-up comedian. Recorded in 1987 at New York City’s Felt Forum (a venue now called the WaMu Theater in the Madison Square Garden complex), Eddie Murphy Raw was Murphy’s second stand-up feature (following 1983’s Delirious), grossing more than $50 million at the box office.

If you’re familiar with Murphy’s stand-up acts, you’ll know that this film is for adult audiences, to say the least. At the time of its release, three years after Beverly Hills Cop, Eddie Murphy Raw contained more uses of the “f” word than any other feature-length film, surpassing Scarface for the distinction.

And while today is the last day of the Hulu Days of Summer, we’ll keep adding more shows and movies on a regular basis. In fact, we already have some good stuff lined up for next week. You can track what’s new to the site from our Recently Added pages: Recently Added TV Shows, Recently Added Movies and All Recently Added Videos. Filters along the left side of these pages allow you to narrow the list down to whatever interests you. Prefer to get this info from your inbox or homepage? Subscribe to an RSS feed for any of these by clicking on the orange RSS button at the top left of these pages, or by visiting our RSS feed page.

Finally, with the fall season just a few weeks away, you can expect to catch the season premieres of many of your favorites right here on Hulu.

    Eddie Murphy is without any doubt the most powerful comedian actor of all time. My favourites movies are, Shrek 2, Shrek the Third , Beverly Hills Cop, Coming to America.

    How can you justify the movie “21 hours in munich”. That has to be the most untrue, full of crap made for TV movie I have ever watched. How do you explain all that bunch of bologna to their families! If I was the producer{Bauer} and the Writer {Glattes} I would be ASHAMED to show this to ANYONE> What a waste of a significant part of a tragic incident in history!

    I just love Hulu, but could you maybe reconsider allowing people from outside the US? Im not sure why its troublesome for you guys but it will be great if you can!

    I have loved hulu from its beta days. what is really amazing about it is seeing all the wasted quality content networks throw away because they do not get the ratings they want immediately. A perfect example is K-ville. Why can’t development executives use places like hulu to foster shows they’re not sure about instead of totally pulling the plug? These shows that are less than 15 minutes long and are made for the web are ok, but it’s not the reason I’m going to come to a place like hulu. Hulu highlights what total crap is currently on television! Please take the idea to the next level.

    Hey, I’ve loved the Hulu website. Does anyone know when or if more seasons og Angel will be input? I loved the first season and was just looking for ssome more.

  • I’ve got two words for Hulu: “That’s Incredible.” Bring it back. Please!

    Love Hulu! How about some classic SNL like the “Lord Douchebag” sketch from 1980(ish)? The early SNL is still some of the best comedy out there!

    I’ll second Sharon’s motion to add “Dead Like Me”. It was one of the best, and most original shows ever made. It’s a pity that it only lasted for a couple of seasons; but each episode was an artistic masterpiece. It was similar in tone to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, but with less action and darker humor. Please try to get the rights to show it if you can.

  • Sharon says:

    Hey Brandon! Great choice with ‘Raw’ – definitely a standup classic. I had a couple friends at a party going on and on about a show I have yet to see: ‘Dead Like Me’. Any possibility of seeing this on Hulu sometime? Thanks for the great content choices!

    Hi Brandon-

    One of the shows I would love to see added is NBC’s old show called “American Dreams”. It was a great show executive produced by Dick Clark that was set in Philadelphia in the 60s. Unfortunately, Universal distribution didn’t seem to think it would be profitable to release all three seasons on DVD and stopped after the first one, but it had a bit of a cult following and I’m sure a lot of people would love to see it go up on the site. Any way this might be possible?

    I’ve been hanging out on Hulu for awhile now, and I just have to say… WOW! The “Hulu Days of Summer” has been awesome and the site is absolutely blooming with content. As an Internet marketing guy I had to tell my clients and readers about the site and explain how they can use Hulu as a tool to increase their own website traffic. The quality of the video is outstanding and the ability to embed seriously good video content is fantastic. I’ve seen the critics saying Hulu was a “late entry”, but I think they just don’t get it. Sometimes doing it right takes a little bit longer. I’ll enjoy watching your rise to the top. Thank you for the wonderful service.

    Umm, when exactly did Hulu decide to shut its doors to everyone outside of America? The site’s title is “Watch your Favorites. Anytime. For Free”. I’m sorry Hulu, this is a complete lie, as anyone viewing your site outside of the US is banned from viewing your videos. All the time. So that you know, I intend on writing a letter to Joss Whedon asking that he pull his Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog video from your network and redistribute it to a video site that isn’t run by people who embrace the philosophy “Defective By Design”. That way, the thousands of other people wanting to see this video, like me, don’t have to resort to downloading the thing via the piratebay.
