Eddie Murphy turned 56-years-old on April 3, and the best way to celebrate the birthday of a comedy legend is to debate his most iconic movie comedies. Murphy took on so many genius roles with films like "Coming to America" and "The Nutty Professor," that it's hard to narrow it down to just one character. "Coming to America" and "The Nutty Professor" are also arguably Murphy's best laugh-out-loud comedies. Which film is his most iconic?🎥

Eddie Murphy played three main characters (Prince Akeem, Clarence and Saul) in "Coming to America." Murphy also played Randy Watson, a soul singer in the band Sexual Chocolate. That's a lot of work for one actor.

Watch this legendary clip of the prince going for a haircut in a Black barbershop, and getting wrapped up in barbershop talk.

Murphy played Buddy Love, Sherman Klump, Papa Klump, Mama Klump, Grandma Klump, Ernie Klump and Lance Perkins in "The Nutty Professor." There's barely a scene in the movie where he's not playing two or more characters on the screen.

Watch this iconic clip of Sherman's date, Carla Purty, meeting his family for the first time.
