After being absent from the show for 30 years Mr. Murphy will return to SNL for their 40th anniversary special. Upon leaving SNL their was some bad blood smeared for a few years. Murphy was not happy about the show poking fun at his career in their skits. Murphy told News One that he was not happy about a skit that featured David Spade. In the skit David Spade is holding a picture of Eddie Murphy and he says look a falling star. The comedian has since forgiven all involved with the tasteless joke.
Murphy’s career since SNL has been pretty much a success, he has faced a few knock outs and drag out along the way, but overall the man remains a star.
