Eddie Murphy Officially Returning to Standup Comedy

It’s official! Eddie Murphy is returning to stand-up comedy.

Of course, he gets the best of both worlds because the funnyman is doing a special virtually.

According to Collider, Eddie will perform a stand-up set at Byron Allen’s upcoming charity event, the Feeding America Comedy Festival.

Co-produced by Funny or Die, the event will raise money for the non-profit Feeding America to aid those hit hardest by COVID-19. The comic will join an already star-studded lineup, including Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish and Billy Crystal.

The event will be three hours long, according to reports, and can only be watched on Allen Media Group’s television networks Comedy.TV on May 9 — as well as on The Weather Channel app and the free streaming service Local Now.

“In partnership with Feeding America, my comedian friends and all of us at Allen Media Group are pleased to announce this global live-streaming comedy event on May 9th,” Bryon said in a statement about the event. “Laughter is often the best medicine, and we are extremely motivated to bring attention to issues of food insecurity, and to assist in providing meals to families across the country who are financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

YES! We’re so ready.
