Eddie Murphy: I’m Going To Do Stand-Up Comedy Again!
Eddie Murphy will return to the stage! The 58-year-old comedian and actor revealed that he hasn’t retired from comedy and will return to stand-up comedy. He revealed this a Netflix clip of Jerry Seinfeld‘s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Seinfeld asks Murphy,
“You know that you not doing stand-up drives people crazy — you know that, right?”
Murphy explains that before the late comedian Don Rickles passed, he told him that he needs to return to stand-up. He says,
“I’m going to do it again. Everything just has to be right. You have to get up there and start working out. [I] still gotta go to the comedy club.”
Despite years of comedy and film, Murphy has maintained a relatively low profile. His latest project was Mr. Church (2016), a drama film based on the short story “The Cook Who Came To Live With Us”.
His other children include: Eric Murphy, 29; Bria Murphy, 29; Christian Murphy, 28; Miles Murphy, 26; Shayne Audra Murphy, 24; Zola Ivy Murphy, 19; Bella Zahra Murphy, 16 and Angel Iris Murphy Brown, 11.
