The legendary comedian appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon ahead of his SNL gig. Fallon asked him about his upcoming stand up special and his infamous leather suits from Delirious and Raw.

Murphy revealed that he doesn’t write down any of his material, and he no longer has the suits (thanks to Keenan Ivory Wayans), which he admitted that he didn’t know would become a signature look. “Keenan’s like six-four with muscles [and] the suit was bustin’ off him,” Eddie recalled. “I said, ‘I dare you to go out with that suit on! This was back in the day so we went to Studio 54 and all these clubs.”


Eddie Murphy also shared that this same story inspired the In Living Color character, Frenchie. “That started from going to the club one night and he was Frenchie from ten to six in the morning and didn’t come out of character…At the end of the night, the suit was destroyed.”

Keenan told his version of the story years ago. Check out their versions below:
