He convinced the producers of the programme of his talent and participates in the 1980-81 season. His appearances are noticed, so it is part of the regular distribution as soon as next season. At the time, Saturday Night Live saw its audiences erode and the production budget was limited. During the 3 years that followed, Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo acolyte participate in most sketches passed to the antenna, and the program quickly regains his audience, giving Murphy a national reputation, thanks to a gallery of characters become cults.

Career actor
Personality rising to the USA through its participation in Saturday Night Live, Murphy was soon to take its first steps in cinema. The director Walter Hill, who is looking for a player that would give the reply by Nick Nolte in his new film, hears Murphy who then gets the role. 48 hours fate in 1982. Nevertheless, its interpretation can not seduced producers of the film, and we need the intervention of producer Jeffrey Katzenberg (co-founder of DreamWorks SKG with Steven Spielberg) so that Murphy was not returned. It receives over comedy, delivered by David Proval (known for his role as Richie Aprile on The Sopranos), during the shooting, to help find the aggressiveness needed for the interpretation of his role as malfrat.

Alongside his acting career, Murphy continued his career as a comedian and develop two shows in 80 years: Delirious (1983) and Raw (1990).
