The Eddie Murphy Raw marriage bit may be the best bit in this entire stand up special. And that's saying something because Raw is one of the funniest stand up specials in the history of comedy. But this scene is amazing. Eddie has decided that it's time to get married. He found the love of his life, until he's at the grocery store and sees a tabloid with a sad Johnny Carson and a happy ex-wife who had gotten half of his money. Half! Since Johnny Carson had $300 million he had to give $150 to his now ex-wife. Half!
As Eddie puts it, "Love and money don't mix."
So, Eddie goes out and finds himself a "cave bitch." A girl who doesn't know about any of the lawyers and pre nups. Because it's just easier that way for Eddie. And he doesn't want to end up like Johnny Carson, with a big sad face on the cover of the Enquirer. This Eddie Murphy Raw marriage breakdown is still hilarious to this day. Probably because he was seeing into the future as divorce rates went up and TV shows like The Real Housewives of Atlanta spring up and show the exact women he talk about (hilariously, I might add) in this epic clip from Raw.
