Eddie Murphy Does Bill Cosby Impression After Saying He Wouldn't (Video)

Eddie Murphy refused to do his Bill Cosby impression on the "Saturday Night Live" 40th anniversary special earlier this year, but changed his mind when receiving the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor on Oct. 18 (video below).

“Bill has one of these,” Murphy joked of the prize, according to The Washington Post.

Murphy added:

"Did you all make Bill give his back? No, because I know there was a big outcry from people, they was trying to get Bill to give his trophies back. You know you [expletive] when they want you to give your trophies back. You want him to give his trophy back too? He should do one show where he just talk crazy now."

Murphy then broke into his Cosby impression, "I would like to talk to some of the people who feel that I should give back some of my [expletive] trophies.”

Earlier in October, Murphy struck a completely different tone when explaining to The Washington Post why he refused to do Cosby on the SNL anniversary show:

"It's horrible. There’s nothing funny about it. If you get up there and you crack jokes about him, you’re just hurting people. You’re hurting him. You’re hurting his accusers. I was like, 'Hey, I’m coming back to SNL for the anniversary, I’m not turning my moment on the show into this other thing.'"
