Comedic veteran Eddie Murphy will be receiving his many dues in the Spike TV special "Eddie Murphy: One Night Only." Some of the biggest comedic names in Hollywood, including Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Arsenio Hall, and Tracy Morgan are scheduled to appear and perform at the never-before televised tribute to Murphy. Jamie Foxx, Adam Sandler, and Keenen Ivory Wayans were also recently confirmed as guests.
"Thirty years ago, Eddie Murphy came on to the comedy scene and changed the game forever," said Casey Patterson, Executive Vice President, Event Production, Talent Development & Studio Relations at Viacom Entertainment Group. "We're thrilled to be honoring him for the very first time, 'One Night Only'." Marking 30 years since the release of his groundbreaking films "Delirious" and "48 Hrs.," the tribute will honor Murphy's extensive career, paying homage to his record-breaking stand-up film "Raw," as well as his memorable "Saturday Night Live" characters. "Eddie Murphy: One Night Only" is set to tape on Saturday, Nov. 3 in Los Angeles, and air on Wednesday, Nov. 14
