Eddie Murphy Taunts Bill Cosby In 'SNL' Monologue: 'Who Is America's Dad NOW?'

"This is the last episode of 2019, but if you’re black, this is the first episode since I left," Murphy boasted.

Eddie Murphy bounced back to “Saturday Night Live” to host for the first time in 35 years, noting ways he’s changed as the audience chanted his name.

“This is the last episode of 2019, but if you’re black, this is the first episode since I left,” boasted the “Dolomite Is My Name” star.

“So much has changed,” he added. “I actually had a new baby” — the 58-year-old dad’s tenth child. “My kids are actually pretty much my whole life now.”

Then the zinger: “If you would have told me 30 years ago that I would be this boring stay-at-home house dad and Bill Cosby would be in jail, even I would have took that bet. Who is America’s dad now?” he added, mocking Cosby.

Tracy Morgan and former “SNL” cast members Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle joined him on stage along with Kenan Thompson. Rock quipped that he “wouldn’t have missed this for the world! My kids love Lizzo” — the night’s musical guest.
