Eddie Murphy in a stand-up performance recorded live. For an hour and a half he talks about his favourite subjects: sex and women.
Although older television sitcoms are famous for having laugh tracks, many people don't realize that movies sometimes have laugh tracks too. Concert movies like Raw have often had the audience reactions "sweetened" so there are no lulls in the jokes, and so the movies seem to move faster.
There's a song out now called "Ain't Nothin' Goin' on But the Rent." So when a man asks a woman "Hey, baby! What's going on?" The woman will say, "The rent, motherfucker!"
When Murphy does his bit about Johnny Carson's divorce settlement with third wife Joanna Holland, he states that they were married for ten years. It was actually thirteen.
When originally released theatrically in the UK, the BBFC made cuts to secure a '18' rating. All cuts were waived in 1988 when the film was granted a '18' certificate for home video.
