Eddie Murphy is a famous stand-up comedian in Hollywood. His career in the entertainment industry began in 1980.
For almost 40 years, the 58-year-old, New York City-born actor made his audiences worldwide chuckle with his TV appearances in "Saturday Night Live," and acclaimed films such as the 1988 classic motion picture, "Coming to America."
Murphy's success in Hollywood also consists of himself being featured in other popular movies, like in the 1983 comedy "Trading Places" and the 1998 fantasy-comedy film "Dr. Dolittle."
The latest showbiz engagements of the father of ten includes his hosting stint in "Saturday Night Live" this December.
Murphy's iconic movies such as "Beverly Hills Cop" and "Coming to America" are set to have sequels as well, based on the report posted online by Showbiz Cheat Sheet, a website delivering updates on entertainment, showbiz, health, sports, and other latest developments.
Murphy may have relished a fruitful career in the entertainment industry. However, fans of the well-known stand-up comic may have wondered what the Hollywood movie star had been up to.
It is because in the past eight years, he was cast in merely two films, which are the 2012 comedy-drama movie, "A Thousand Words," and the 2016 drama motion picture, "Mr. Church."
Murphy was speaking in an interview with Entertainment Weekly writer Derek Lawrence in October. He discussed his lack of Hollywood involvement in recent years.
Murphy confirmed that he was exhausted by his job in the film industry. The film star, who appears in "Dolemite Is My Name" this year, also disclosed that the only reason why he is making films is because of the awesome feeling of being in a movie that the audiences appreciate and for a film that is comical.
The Mark Twain Prize for American Humor awardee, however, confirmed that his showbiz career is not over yet. He also remarked that he still believes that he is still as hilarious as he used to be.
