Like most professional comedians, Bill Burr still occasionally falls victim to a bad set. Fortunately, though, his comedy hero Eddie Murphy has only been present for one of his bombs.

Watch the "Conan" backstage clip above to hear Burr share his most "starstruck" moment while performing on tour with Eddie Murphy's brother, Charlie Murphy.
