In 1984, Eddie left the popular show to pursue a successful film career; and steered away from appearing as a host or guest on Saturday Night Live.
During an episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld, the Coming to America star announced that he would be jumping back on stage to provide comedy entertainment — something he’s managed to avoid all these years since appearing on the big screen.
