Comedic legend #EddieMurphy opened up about his career in a new clip from Jerry Seinfeld‘s Netflix show ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.’
“You know that you not doing stand-up drives people crazy… you know that, right?” Seinfeld asked. Murphy said he’s heard that before and mentioned that the late comedian Don Rickles urged him to return to the stage before he passed away.
“I’m going to do it again,” Murphy said. “Everything just has to be right. You have to get up there and start working out. [I] still gotta go to the comedy club.”
Apparently, Murphy kept his word, as he’s reportedly been in talks with Netflix for ‘an undisclosed number of comedy specials,’ said to be paying out approximately $70 million.
Netflix has recently been notorious for paying comedians top dollar for comedy specials, with stars such as Dave Chappell, who reportedly struck a deal of $60 million for three specials, and Chris Rock, who earned close to $40 million for two specials.
