Eddie Murphy Wants To Do Stand-Up Again

| Filed under: Eddie Murphy


Whoa, is it the '80s again??

Eddie Murphy is planning to return to the stage as a stand-up comedian, but says he needs at least a year to get enough material.

The Shrek star says:

"Within the last six months or so, I started getting an itch to do it again. I started writing stuff… I was like, 'I could go and do 15, 20 minutes right now. Maybe in a couple of months I'll start working out again'. But it'll take a year before I'm ready to go on the road… It's gonna take at least a year to get the rust off; 20 years of rust."

We hope he does more classic SNL comedy and less Nutty Professor crap!

    1st Bitches!!!!
    Would LOVE to see ol' Eddie on stage. He is hilarious.

  2. 2

    I still haven't seen any of his stand-up. Although I heard Eddie Murphy: Raw was pretty outrageous … I'll have to check it out.

  3. 3

    Since you got this information from Eddies' interview on the Ellen show last week….I think he'll be brilliant back on the comedy stage!!! Way to be current Perez!!!

  4. 4

    I always thought him not doing stand up is what made him lazy and less funny. He used to be really good. He was never know as a joke thief like Robin Williams, Carlos Mencia, or Dane Cook. He was funny and a good comic. This will be a great testament to prove if he still has it. I can't wait to see his stand up. Hopefully he won't disappoint.

    go take care of the child you first fathered and than denied (while excusing mel b of being a slut). you fucking hack

  9. 9

    YEAH!!! RAW2

    I think he'll do just fine if he pulls from real life experiences, and not trying to go another route… He's always been funny, and people don't typically lose that gift…no matter what they've been through…

    Maybe this will be a renaissance for him. It has been a collosal waste of talent for him to do all the crap movies he's been doing. Younger folks need to check out the Best of SNL and Delirious DVDs to see how funny and talented he was. Although, I must add that I think he should have won an Oscar for the first Nutty Professor. That was brilliant, but the Academy generally doesn't recognize comedies/comedians.

    He's nothing but a COTTON PICKIN NIG

  13. 13

    He stopped? Stand up comic hardly stop. Even Leno still does it once in a while and he has a top paying job. Joy from The View still does it too. PEREZmakesME-WET, your mother is A COTTON PICKING NIG. OR AT LEAST SHE FUCKED ONE. Head back to your trailer white monkey. See what you did? See what you make me say on a Sunday? Now STFU!

  14. 14

    oh and the pictures appropriate. surrounded by a bunch of his kids while he looks disinterested in everything but the camera. peace out. oh and ps i like him before mel b-gate but he treated her like shit on a stick. comedy royalty? ha! his true colours came out when he acted like someone dragged up in the projects. "that ain't my bb. that ain't my fucking child. she a slag tryin' get her hands on my mon." absolutley disgustin. and thou some bitches do that shit mel is not that type of girl AT ALL and did NOT deserve the humiliation he brought beverly hills COCK brought her.

  15. 15

    hahah and if he's "gettin an itch" it's prob more to with all the hos and cheap as bimbos he bangs on the regular than with his "art"

  16. 16

    Re: trinigirl123 – why does it matter if it;s on a sunday?? ps that person is a raciast scumbag. i wouldn't even bother to reason with someone that dumbe

  17. 17

    Stick to acting, Eddie!

  18. 18

    Re: hamnip – that was the first thing that came to mind after reading this post! awesome!

  19. 19

    too late sucka

  20. 20

    If he comes back and is as good (or better) than he was when he used to tour–I would definitely go!!! High-Lar-Eeee-US!

  21. 21

    Its the sabbath (Sunday for me, Saturday for others). I just came from church. Lol.

  22. 22

    Re: trinigirl123 – oh ok.

  23. sreyn says – reply to this


    About damn time return to what made you rich and famous and btw what you were good at and leave the kids movies alone. I think you have made enough flops in the past few years to cover a lifetime

  24. 24

    Finally!!! He's hilarious.

  25. 25

    Eddie's stand up was THE BEST. So much better than the crap you hear today. Lets hope his work will still be politically incorrect.

  26. 26

    Re: hobbestheprince – Forget Raw, you gotta see his Delirious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. 27

    I wish someone would do a face book quest for Eddie Murphy to do SNL. I would love to see him on stage again. It would be hilarious if he came on stage wearing his red leather outfit he wore once. EDDIE WE WANT YOU BACK.

  28. 28

    I don't know if he still has it in him after doing G and PG rated material for the last 10-15 years. His old fans aren't going to go see him in club to hear Shrek and Dr. Dolittle material.

  29. 29

    If he is going to do more gay jokes, lets hope they are about trannies in cars with famous people.

  30. 30

    Thank GOD! "Raw" and "Delirious" are possibly the two funniest movies I've ever seen. I hope he brings back the impressions of his dad ("This is MY house!") but not the homophobia.

  31. 31

    as long as its not the G rated shit hes done the last 15 ys

    eddie murphy RAW still the best standup act fuckin ever

    goonie goo goo

    LMAO he better not fuck it up

  32. 32

    Oh PLEASE let this be true! No one does stand-up like Eddie.

  33. 33

    Yes Eddie….Stand up comedy..go back to your roots.

  34. 34

    That is how he started so I think it would be great. I would definitely pay money to see his standup act.

  35. Heh says – reply to this


    This made my day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  36. 36

    Re: PEREZmakesME-WET – please go back your trailer park and continue sucking your cousin's dick would be a response I'd make but know what I know you want attention. Have fun.

    Puss in boots is on his shoulder. Ha.
