After Eddie Murphy accepted the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour on Sunday night at the Kennedy Centre in Washington DC, he took the chance to make an impression of previous prize recipient Bill Cosby, who received the honour in 2009 and who is currently at the centre of sexual asault allegations.

He then launched into an impression of the follow comedian. “I would like to talk to some of the people who feel like I should give back some of my (expletive) trophies,” he said
