EDDIE MURPHY'S RETURN TO STAND-UP COMEDY

His portrayal of Rudy Ray Moore might have sparked a sudden inspiration for Eddie Murphy, as while leading a colorful career in the movie industry, Eddie recently expressed his intent to revive his stand-up comedy career.

From a fellow comedian to another, Jamie Foxx told him that the first thing he needs to do is fix his house. Baffled by the comment, Jamie explained that Murphy's house is "too perfect" with all the scented candles there, and he needs to be "imperfectly funny."

After decades in the industry, Eddie Murphy seems to only be getting started, and that's something his fans are delighted to hear as he's been releasing project after project.
