Aries Spears is probably most recognized from his work on Mad TV, where he created a number of characters and performed many spot-on impressions. One of those impressions was of his boyhood idol Eddie Murphy, who is also known for creating odd characters and doing hilarious impressions. Ironically, Murphy never seemed to care for Spears’ shenanigans. “I met Eddie a couple of times,” he explains. “From what I’ve heard Eddie’s not a big fan of being made fun of.” Fortunately there’s much more to Aries Spears.
