"Eddie Murphy: One Night Only" will pay homage to Murphy's journey from a 15-year-old aspiring comedian, to the record-breaking "Raw," which remains the highest grossing stand-up film of all time, to his indelible characters and impressions from "Saturday Night Live" including Buckwheat, Gumby, Mr. Robinson and James Brown.

The special marks 30 years since the release of the groundbreaking stand-up concert film "Delirious," and the classic film "48 Hrs.," which featured the breakout performances that made him one of the biggest superstars in the world.
