Eddie Murphy looks forward to his great return to Saturday Night Live! As you know, the actor was part of the iconic comedy show for four years before leaving in 1984.
That said, tonight, Eddie will be the host of SNL for the first time since he left and it is definitely a great day for him, almost like a kind of "school reunion,quot;!
After all, the series is what really put his name and launched his successful acting career.
But, of course, it was a win-win situation since Eddie also helped SNL a lot with his qualifications when he joined, all due to his great talent as a comedian.
Now, while chatting with former SNL student Jimmy Fallon, in his evening program, he revealed that "it is very similar to returning to your old high school or returning to university because it is exactly the same system in place." It is a bit surreal. Thirty-five years since I returned. I went for 40. Thirty-five years since I did the program. "
While this is an official return to the SNL stage, it also made a brief appearance in 2015.
At that time, the series was celebrating its 40th anniversary and made an appearance like himself as the celebration featured a series of former SNL cast members.
In addition, Prince also performed at the post-event party. Unfortunately, the legend passed away last year at the age of 57.
That said, while on The Tonight Show, Eddie talked about some memories with the music icon.
Apparently, Prince had a roller skating party. It was about 2 or 3 in the morning. We're home and Prince says: "Who wants to go rollerblading?" We went to this skating rink at 3 in the morning. Do you know some shoes that they would have, when you walk, they would light up? I had skates that when I skated, they turned on. It was surreal. "
Eddie mentioned that Prince also used to stay in a house near his own house!
