There has been a huge amount of speculation over the last few years about if Eddie Murphy would perform stand up again or not.  

Having started out as a stand up comedian, he was soon snapped up by Saturday Night Live and quickly became one of the biggest movie stars of all time. He hasn't made a film in a few years, but is still widely regarded as the best ever by guys like Chris Rock and Tracey Morgan - among many others. 

In the below video, Murphy is presented with the Mark Twain Prize for humour by his Bowfinger co-star, Steve Martin. In a short bit, he takes the piss out of another famous, now disgraced comic who also picked one up. 

There are some interviews at the top where Murphy talks about writing new material, while he pops on stage just before 2.20 or so.
