Look out, folks- Eddie Murphy is funny again! Yes, it's true. The comedian was recently honored at the Kennedy Center by getting the oh-so-prestigious Mark Twain Award. During his acceptance speech he mentioned that former comedian, and current creep, Bill Cosby also has one of the awards. And, well, it was the perfect place to break out that wonderfully done Cosby impression.

Yep, that's right – Eddie Murphy finally did a Bill Cosby impression after declining to do so on Saturday Night Live's 40th anniversary show.

Murphy accepted the award graciously, and after listing the others who have the award, noted, "Oh, Bill has one of these," with a sort of do I want to go there smile. And yes, he went there.

"Did y'all make Bill give his back?" he asked. Murphy then explained that he wishes Cosby would go out and do a show where he "talks crazy" and expresses his anger at having to "give his trophies back."

"I would like to talk to some of the people who feel that I should give back my motherf*cking trophies!" Murphy said in sheer Cosby form.

And, yes, it was a delight.

Here's a glimpse from the night at the Kennedy Center. For the impression, skip over to the 2:20 mark.

The awards ceremony will reportedly air Nov. 23 at 9 p.m. on PBS. Hopefully Murphy's impression of the Cosby Show star isn't cut out. Let's be real- he's going to see it so there's no point in cutting it from the speech.

Unless of course Murphy has no idea how YouTube works.
