Eddie Murphy will receive the Comedy Icon accolade at the forthcoming Comedy Awards, it has been revealed.

Eddie Murphy is to receive a Comedy Icon award.
The 'Beverly Hills Cop' star will be honoured at the first-ever Comedy Awards for his 30-year career in stand-up, sketch, film and television at the event, which takes place at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on March 26.
Casey Patterson, executive producer and executive vice president, event production, MTV Networks Entertainment Group said: "Eddie Murphy's impact in the world of comedy is immeasurable.
"From the characters he created on 'SNL,' to his groundbreaking stand-up performances and unforgettable film roles, Murphy changed the game forever and we're honoured that he will be joining us for the first-ever Comedy Awards."

The recipient for the honour has not yet been revealed.
