    So Eddie Murphy was there to get a standing ovation?

  • Truth Seeker

    That was almost sad. How does a Legendary entertainer like Eddie Murphy go from adoring the stage and effortlessly making a theatre full of people laugh their heads off, to now Not even being able to talk in front of a crowd for more than 2 minutes without looking uncomfortable. It’s mindboggling how he’s lost his charisma & quick wit.

    You people act like he owes you something, how can someone be your perfect entertainer every day of every year? Respect the man for what he’s done and be grateful for what he gave you, maybe his life is just different now, maybe he wasn’t feeling funny, maybe he’s suffering from depression, or maybe they just didn’t pay him enough to tell any jokes. Truth is it’s none of our business and he doesn’t owe us anything.
