Star Studded SNL with Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappelle, & Chris Rock

COMEDY

Eddie Murphy returned to his roots on television as he made an appearance on the final episode of 2019 for Saturday Night Live. It’s been 35 years since he made a regular appearance on the sketch comedy show. He relived some of his old sketch characters which made him one of the most successful stars to elevate his career post SNL.

“It’s good to be here,” said Murphy said during his opening monologue. “This is the last episode of 2019, but if you’re black, this is the first episode since I left back in 1984.”

His monologue was filled with plenty of surprises as Murphy brought out his peers Dave Chappelle, Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock, and Kenan Thompson.

“You’re looking at half of Netflix’s Budget right here on stage,” Chappelle quipped at one point.

Murphy went on to reflect on his success as a family man over the year, acknowledging his 10 children, bringing the total to “11 if you count Kevin Hart.”

“If you would have told me 30 years ago that I would be this boring, stay-at-home house dad and Bill Cosby would be in jail, even I wouldn’t have took that bet,” Murphy admitted. “Who is America’s dad now?”

The fans of Saturday Night Live and Eddie Murphy rejoiced at the reunion and took to social media to show their satisfaction.
