Eddie Murphy might now only be good for mouthing the words of an animated donkey but for years he gave us some of Hollywood’s best comedy characters. The Brooklyn-born actor performed stand-up at the same comedy club where Robin Williams and Whoopi Goldberg frequented before helping revitalise Saturday Night Live during its 1980s slump. He made his big screen debut alongside Nick Nolte in Walter Hill’s 48 Hrs and followed it with a string a successful films including Beverly Hills Cop, Trading Places and Coming To America.
