This Eddie Murphy Rocky scene from Raw is hilarious. Eddie's take on Italians after they have seen the movie Rocky is so spot on, it's still funny to this day. Because let's face it, it's true. Italians are proud people, and Rocky is their hero. The Italian Stallion who came out of nowhere to win the heavyweight championship as a heavily favored underdog. So, of course, after an Italian walks out of the movie theater having just seen Rocky, they are strutting around like a peacock and screaming "Alright Rocko!" "Alright Sly!" at the top of their lungs. And then they start using a lot of racial epithets that aren't really appropriate 30 years later. But then Eddie tells the story of a little Italian guy who's just seen Rocky strutting over to the movie counter and ordering a bunch of candy (juji fruits, junior mints etc) and making a much larger black guy pay for it, all the while using the word Mooly. As you can imagine, the little Italian guy doesn't make it out of this scene very well. But the audience does.
I just wish there were more stand up specials like Raw. When I was younger and saw this for the first time, I'm not sure I knew I was seeing history. Raw is easily one of the funniest hour and a halves of comedy in the history of stand up. And the Eddie Murphy Rocky scene is just one little four minute video clip of it. Amazing.
