It felt like a Black family reunion for comedy’s best and brightest at the Dolemite Is My Name premiere in Los Angeles last Saturday.

The Netflix film, which stars Eddie Murphy as blaxploitation star Rudy Ray Moore, celebrated its release with a red carpet event at Westwood’s Regency Theater.

“It’s a great inspirational story about this man who did something incredible and people don’t know about it,” Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter at the event.

The premiere also marked the big screen return of Murphy, who has long left the limelight of Hollywood, for family life.

Stars including Wesley Snipes, Tracy Morgan, Samuel L. Jackson, Mike Epps, Snoop Dogg, Tituss Burgess, Keegan-Michael Key and Craig Robinson attended the A-list event.
