After emerging on stage for the live show, Murphy begins by discussing the angry reactions of celebrities parodied in his previous stand-up show, Delirious, specifically Mr. T and Michael Jackson, as well as homosexual viewers offended by his jokes about “faggots.” Murphy then narrates a phone call he received from Bill Cosby chastising him for using profanity on stage. Angered by Cosby’s assumption that his entire act was nothing but “filth flarn filth,” Murphy calls Richard Pryor for advice. Pryor declares that his only concerns should be making audiences laugh and getting paid, and recommends that he tell Cosby to “Have a Coke and a smileand shut the fuck up.” Murphy elaborates on his admiration for the “raw” comedy of Pryor, running through a routine from his own teenage years about defecation, in Pryor’s voice. He then goes on to talk about how people who don’t speak English only pick up the curse words in his act, and shout them at him on the street.
