I don't even feel like he got shafted. It's like I went to bed one night and when I woke up he just sucked. He went from genius to lame...

I think he just grew old, became a family man and lost his edge.

He was only like 20-25 when he was huge.

I liked him in Bowfinger. And Shrek.

Those are probably the two most recent movies he was legitimately (if at all) funny in.

I really like him in Shrek.

I think he's one of those guys that has to have boundaries and then you can go let him run and play inside them.

Thats right, he's like an old rock band...you can only stay cutting edge for so long.

Then you start churning out formulated poop like Aerosmith etc. The High-Life changes people.

Also, and i dont give a fukk what Dane McCloud says...Hollywood warps people (they start thinking they're somehow better & smarter than the rest of us, seen it with mine own eyes)...thats why the smart ones dont live there full time.

I agree wit Pauly shore who said blacks can get away with anything and other races can't.

Double standard.

If a white guy wrote a bit about Negrotown or it's non-pc colloquial (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colloquial) slang term then what would happen?

Michael Richards?????

If you ever find yourself agreeing with Pauly Shore about anything, it's probably time to take a step back and examine who and where you are in life.

But thanks for the Wikipedia link for the word "colloquial". I woulda been TOTALLY lost without it!!!!!!

I recently picked up both Delirious and Raw. It really is a shame that he doesn't do stand-up anymore. Of course, from most things you hear about him, he seems like a Class A prick.

I bet you for every 0ld star that is a jaded ****-up, there is an old established star that would make my list.

If Eddie had simply had the courtesy to wreck his life and die young we'd all have remembered him in a better light.

That's definitive proof that he never really cared about us.

Evidently you have never seen Steve Martin doing comedy. Hell I seem to recall an entire movie about him believing he was black that made fun of all the stereotypes.

I don't think George Carlin has been funny since the 80's...maybe the early 90's.

Saw him here in Omaha and people were actually getting up and leaving...he was going off on these 3-5 minute rants about the world, and people (myself included) were like "George, make us laugh or STFU!"

His old bits were great. Now he's just a crotchety old bastard...

Right, in the '70's and '80's Steve Martin and Mel Brooks could get away with anything they wanted, but they were both hilarious. Just Watch "The Jerk" or Blazing Saddles" or "History of the World, Part I".
Of course Mel is Jewish...

I'd disagree. His last HBO special was one of the funniest shows he's ever done, IMO.

Yep. Imagine the outrage if he had made Blazing Saddles today, or the "Last Supper" scene from History of the World. People would be calling for boycotts and for him to be run out of town.

Anybody think a modern Norman Lear could get away with "All in the Family" these days?

PC is killing comedy. :shake:

Eddie Murphy is a comic genuis who has made some bad movies. Same with Steve Martin. Eddie as Stevie Wonder or James Brown, or his Bill Cosby impersonation, all gold.

Steve Martin is also funny as Hell. And George Carlin is as influential to comedy as Richard Pryor, both pioneers in the 70's of saying exactly what was on their minds, using their own honest way of expressing themselves.

Few comics today touch any of these guys. Dane Cook? Please...
