Eddie Murphy brings back classic characters, comedy all-stars

Eddie Murphy wasn’t just OK on his long-awaited return to “Saturday Night Live,” he was “Otay!”

The comedy legend brought back classic characters like Buckwheat, Mister Robinson and Gumby, plus took the “SNL” stage with some all-stars when he hosted the show Saturday for the first time in 35 years.

Fellow “SNL” alumni Chris Rock and Tracy Morgan joined Murphy as well as Dave Chappelle during the comedian’s monologue on the holiday episode. “This is the last episode of 2019, but if you’re black, this is the first episode since I left back in 1984,” Murphy joked.

He discussed his new baby, his 10th child — “11 if you count Kevin Hart. … But if you would have told me 30 years ago that I would be this boring-stay at-home house dad and Bill Cosby would be in jail, even I wouldn’t have taken that bet. Who is America’s dad now?!” Murphy cracked with a spot-on Cosby impression.
