Orlando Sentinel - - PEOPLE & ARTS -

Ed­die Mur­phy per­formed his le­gendary Bill Cosby im­pres­sion when he re­turned to “Satur­day Night Live” for the first time in 35 years. In the open­ing mono­logue Mur­phy noted he had 10 chil­dren and “if you had told me 30 years ago that I would be this bor­ing stayat-home house dad and Bill Cosby would be in jail, even I would have took that bet.” Then came the im­pres­sion: “Who’s Amer­ica dad now?!” Cosby ap­prently wasn’t happy, and his pub­li­cist, An­drew Wy­att, crit­i­cized Mur­phy in a state­ment: “It is sad that Mr. Mur­phy would take this glo­ri­ous mo­ment of re­turn­ing to SNL and make dis­parag­ing re­marks against Mr. Cosby. One would think that Mr. Mur­phy was given his free­dom to leave the plan­ta­tion ... but he de­cided to sell him­self back to be­ing a Hol­ly­wood Slave.”
