Eddie Murphy Retiring From Film; Back To Standup?


Posted June 30, 2008 - By Frank Meyer

Comedy legend Eddie Murphy recently told Extra that his upcoming movie, Meet Dave, is one of his last.

"Fifty years (old) I'll have been making movies thirty years and I have close to fifty movies and it is like why am I in the movies,’ Murphy commented. “I've done that part now.”

But here’s the real news. He also said that he will be returning to standup comedy!


“I'll go back to the stage and do standup," he added, when discussing his future plans after stepping away from movie making.

Now, you yungins may or may not recall that before his film career Murphy was one of the best standup comedians EVER! Go rent Delirious, Raw or Comedian and get a taste of exactly why he is a comedy legend (and it ain’t because of Pluto Nash!)
