Biography

Brooklyn NY, United States (1977 – present)

Edward Regan Murphy (born April 3, 1961 in Brooklyn, New York) is an Academy award-nominated actor and comedian. He has also enjoyed a singing career. Here is some background information on his recordings from Party All The Time Songfacts:
Eddie Murphy actually has had an extensive singing career, it’s just not his biggest claim to fame. His biggest hit was “Party All The Time,” which reached #2 in the US in 1985. He had another Billboard Hot 100 hit single in 1989 with the cringe-inducing title “Put Your Mouth On Me,” which reached #27. Besides two solo music albums, he’s also done some of the songs in films he’s appeared in, such as the Shrek franchise and 1988’s Coming to America. He’s also provided vocals in odd places like Saturday Night Live sketches (“Wookin’ Pa Nub,” anyone?), backing for The BusBoys, and hey, even appeared in Michael Jackson’s video “Remember The Time.”

Murphy began his comedy career at the age of 16, as part of a comedy duo with fellow comedian Mitchell Kyser at the Roosevelt Youth Center in Roosevelt, Long Island, where he grew up. At 19 he became a performer on NBC’s Saturday Night Live television show, not long after graduating from Roosevelt Junior-Senior High School. His characters include a parody of Buckwheat from the Little Rascals and an inner-city black version of Fred Rogers known as “Mr. Robinson”. Former SNL writer Margaret Humphert has said Murphy and Bill Murray are the two most talented people in the history of the show.
