He’ll also be returning to the live stand-up comedy circuit. On an episode of a Netflix podcast, “Present Company with Krista Smith,” he casually confirmed rumors that he’s returning to live stand-up comedy in 2020.

Murphy has also reportedly been in talks with Netflix for a series of stand-up specials.The deal could be similar to the one Dave Chappelle has with the streaming giant.
Additionally, Murphy stars in the upcoming Netflix movie, ‘Dolomite Is My Name.’.It will be released on the platform on October 25.He is also returning for the sequel to his 1988 comedy film, ‘Coming to America,’ which hits theaters next year.
But, as Seinfeld told him earlier this summer, the live stage is what his die-hard fans crave most.
“You know that you not doing stand-up drives people crazy — you know that, right?” he told Murphy on “Comedians in Cars.”
His fans are totally elated by this news and cannot wait to witness his comeback.
