Serious Jest: (Must Own) This one’s a comedy classic. Murphy’s ability to play different unique characters was even more impressive than in his Saturday Night Live days. The jokes are still hilarious 15 years later, and people still know what you mean when you chant, “Hercules! Hercules! Hercules!”
