Will Eddie Murphy Return in Stand-Up Comedy? With a $70 Million Contract, Here’s What He Plans to Do
The ‘80s comedy can never be the same without Eddie Murphy in it. However, the comedian dicided to leave those glory eyars behind and focus on making people laugh through the silver screen rather than on stage. Now that the world of stand-up comedy is redeeming its glory, Netflix is trying to get him back on stage.
Eddie Murphy’s Comeback
Ever since he retired from doing stand-up comedy, his fans and fellow comedians have been trying to convince him to make a comeback. After all, he is by all means one of the funniest people on Earth. The good news is, he never permanently closed his curtains. As a matter of fact, he is currently in talks with the streaming platform Netflix to make a series of comedy specials.
It’s a $70-Million Deal!
According to the reports, Netflix offered him a whopping $70 million deal to make a return on stage. If that happens, Murphy will be the highest-paid stand-up comedian in history, beating Dave Chappelle’s $60-million contract with Netflix for making three specials, as well as Chris Rock’s $40-million deal for his two comedy specials. When a legend comes back, he better do it with an exclamation point!
There hasn’t been any confirmation yet on how many specials would he be working with Netflix, but everyone’s excited to witness his on-stage wit once again after over thirty years since he released the Eddie Murphy Raw. Even Murphy himself is eager to return to the form, and he’s been preparing for it.
Eddie Made a Promise
During his guest appearance on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he made a promise to make a comeback in stand-up comedy soon. He also told his fellow comedian that getting up on stage to work on some materials is the first step in doing so. And with Netflix’s multi-million offer, he’s getting close on fulfilling that promise.
There is a huge chance that Murphy would agree to work with the platform. Netflix is currently focusing on gathering all the big names in comedy these days, and Murphy’s comeback would do them both a favor. Netflix would make history for bringing Eddie Murphy back on stage, while Murphy would earn the biggest paycheck a stand-up comedian has ever received.
Eddie Murphy starred in numerous films such as 48 Hrs., Trading Places, Best Defense, Beverly Hills Cop, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, The Golden Child, Mulan, Dr. Dolittle, the Shrek series, Daddy Day Care, and The Haunted Mansion. Although his legacy reflects more from stand-up comedy, he has also won several awards in the film business such as a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award.
