Eddie Murphy vs. Bill Cosby

While comedian-on-comedian action sounds exciting, the beef between Eddie Murphy and Bill Cosby played itself out in the press, not the stage. After Murphy included a bit in his hit 1987 stand-up special, Raw, about Cosby chiding him for cursing on stage, Cosby called him out (20 years later) as a liar. "I've heard people curse. I mean, Richard Pryor is my friend. So what am I gonna tell him about the cursing?"
