"I just got to L.A. and I go to the comedy store -- sneak in -- and I'm watching all the comedians ... I open the door and there your father was working on his routine," Foxx fondly recalls. "And he had on this jacket -- it was yellow and black, it was jeweled out -- and somebody yelled out, 'Is that a Century 21 jacket?' Century 21 is this real estate company, and they all wear yellow jackets. And he said something amazing, he says, 'Please, I'll crush you with my wallet.' And the whole place just [cracked up]."
On a serious note, he expressed his obvious admiration for Murphy.
"I will never forget that your father is the absolute best to ever do it," he said. "We pale in comparison."
