Originally airing on the 13th of November 2012, “Eddie Murphy: One Night Only” paid homage to Murphy’s journey from a 15-year old aspiring comedian to his Saturday Night Live characters. Recorded earlier that month in Beverly Hills. It’s not exactly a roast — it’s more laudatory than that — but a variety of Hollywood elite paying their due to one of the most popular and important comics of all time.

Murphy was set to host the Oscars this year, but bowed out when the 2012 Oscars producer Brett Ratner, Murphy’s good friend, left the show following controversial comments. It left us all wondering what might have been — would we have seen some of that cutting with that made him a star? Or family-friendly “Meet the Klumps” fare?

This special is likely the closest you’re going to get to finding out, as Murphy hasn’t expressed interest in returning to standup and has a long-running beef with his old home on “Saturday Night Live” ever since David Spade mocked Murphy’s then-fading star in the early ’90s on his “Hollywood Minute” segment.

Arsenio Hall tried daring Murphy into doing standup on the show, and while reports indicate he didn’t quite get the hour of standup he demanded, Murphy definitely got in a few classic lines.

The star-studded event featured appearances by includes Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, Tyler Perry, Keenen Ivory Wayans, Russell Brand, Samuel L. Jackson, Tracy Morgan, Brett Ratner, and Jeffrey Katzenberg. The night was punctuated with an unforgettable impromptu on-stage duet featuring Eddie and Stevie Wonder.”Eddie Murphy: One Night Only” paid 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 special marked 30 years since the release of the groundbreaking stand-up concert film “Delirious,” and the classic film “48 Hrs.,” which featured the breakout performances that made him one of the biggest superstars in the world.
