Murphy's career continued to slide until 1996, when he would make his comeback in comedies, starting with The Nutty Professor. Richard Pryor had nothing good to say about the film or the star, which stunned Murphy, who had considered Pryor an idol.
Harlem Nights was savaged not only by the critics, but also by several of the actors in the film. However, in the late 80's and early 90's, Murphy's fame was fading via a series of poor sequels, drab comedies, and ego-driven vehicles that the public avoided in droves. He made vicious comments about gays and AIDS during his 80's standup routines, so vicious that some years later he apologized for the remarks.

Murphy later starred in many comedies including the Beverly Hills Cop series, Trading Places and Coming to America.
His characters include a parody of Buckwheat from the Little Rascals and of Fred Rogers.
