We haven’t seen him in a while, but he’s certainly not out of the picture: comedian Eddie Murphy has made another film. This Dolemite Is My Name will be released in early October before the comedy can be seen online via Netflix. When he and director Craig Brewer talked to the New York Times a while ago, the 58-year-old American revealed his new feelings about his past shows. Including the well-known Eddie Murphy Raw .
The 1987 stand-up show was a great success for the actor who became famous thanks to Saturday Night Live. The session contains quite a few entertaining jokes, but if we have to believe Murphy, it is often too cruel. In the show he jokes about homosexual stereotypes and the transmission of AIDS. That would not be possible now, Murphy told the New York Times.
The actor explains: “At the time I was a young guy who processed a broken heart, you know. Bit of a motherfucker.” According to Murphy, he was ignorant, something he indicated earlier in 1996 with an extensive apology. He indicated that he regretted the material he used. Murphy said, “I regret all the pain I have caused. Like the rest of the world, I now know more about AIDS. I know how serious it is.”
Although he has not announced anything, there is a chance that Murphy will make a new stand-up show in the future. If we may believe him, he already has 15 to 20 minutes of material, something that he wants to extend to a playing time of 90 minutes. He will probably talk a lot about his children.
Because:“I have now had a whole lifetime of experiences. There was a time when I was the center of everything. What I did, how funny and popular I was. But I am not now. My children are. Everything revolves around them. “
