Saturday Night Live celebrated its 40th anniversary earlier this year with a star-studded TV special, and the milestone also led to a major highlight for cast member Jay Pharoah.

As Pharoah explains in EW’s Greatest Story Ever Told series, he was at a party the night before the live event and saw Eddie Murphy out of the corner of his eye. When he mentioned it to fellow attendee Louis C.K., the comedian offered to introduce them.
