Upcoming Events › EDDIE MURPHY › – TRYLON



June 10 - 12 at the Trylon

In the 1980s, an African American man became the biggest movie star in the world. By making racism the butt of the joke, Eddie Murphy made Reagan-era America laugh at itself and inspired a generation of comics. These action comedies highlight not only Murphy’s superb comedic timing, but also his leading-man appeal.
