Eddie turns 54 today. I normally don't post many of these, BUT I was in dire need of a laugh today... and this guy has provided several of them. To commemorate his birthday (and my need for a laugh), I decided to post my favorite skits of his from SNL. Unfortunately, all of them weren't available on YouTube like Gumby or 'White like Me' when he's a white man for a day or even the James Brown skit that my cousin Kim used to sing over and over when we were younger. Speaking of childhood... she had a tape of the SNL skits and we watched them more than enough. It's even funnier as an adult. Take a glimpse...#FlashbackFriday
To this day... my brother breaks out with this entire skit impression randomly... and kills it.
I laugh before I even press play
This is when I found Eddie can 'sangggg' AND he does a great Stevie impression. Two greats.
Saw this at my aunt house while she was babysitting me and when my mom picked me up from the house.. I walked around the apt. the entire time saying 'You are blind as a bat and i have sight' lol. That's still my fav part.
I think my top 3 Eddie films are : Boomerang, Beverly Hills Cop, and Trading Places/Coming to America as a tie. I should pose this question to my bro and cousin(s) later.
Eddie doesn't get as much credit as he deserves. I mean c'mon he executed a classic scene of an entire family where he played 95% of the characters (Nutty Professor)... and didn't receive one award. He's done so much, man. A living legend. Happy Birthday to you :).
