Eddie Murphy did a standup routine for the first time in nearly three decades — and he came back swinging!
This weekend, the 54-year-old funnyman was honored at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., where he received the Mark Twain Prize for humor — and while receiving the award, he slammed former recipient Bill Cosby!

During his acceptance speech, Eddie did his famous impression of the controversial comedian, popularized during Eddie’s stint on SNL.
Interestingly enough, he refused to do it earlier this year for Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special, saying he didn’t want to “kick a man when he’s down.”

At the time, the disgraced 78-year-old even commended Eddie, saying he was “very appreciative of Eddie and [he] applauds his actions.”
While it’s unclear what changed for honoree, we sure are glad he’s back on the stage with his best material!
