Eddie Murphy is heading back to stand-up comedy after sources claim Netflix want him to perform on their platform.

Netflix is buying the rights to comedy gigs to fill up their Netflix Originals catalogue with the likes of Kevin Hart, Bill Murr, John Mulaney and recently Ricky Gervais joining the streaming platform.

According to sources, Eddie has been in talks with Netflix to purchase the rights and work on new material that will be exclusively available on their streaming platform — all for the hilarious tine of $70 million.

In 2016, Chris Rock also featured on Netflix with his stand-up comedy, but he only received $40 million for two specials. That’d be chump-change for Eddie if the deal is signed off.

Recently, during an interview for Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he said he wants to get back into stand-up comedy after dropping the mic years ago, but he needs to get back into fitness and get his groove back.
