As an addendum to this most recent season of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, Netflix filmed a conversation between host/creator Jerry Seinfeld and this season’s most high-profile guest, Eddie Murphy. The two talked to Joy Reid about coming up together in the same comedy scene in NY at the same time and the evolution of comedy since then including the old school comics and Murphy’s meteoric rise to fame. They then began to debate who is the funniest comedian of all time and that gets us into a whole new bag of worms. That part of the conversation starts around the 21 minute mark.
The conversation is fascinating for comedy fans and this clip came out on Netflix’ new Netflix Is A Joke Youtube Page which probably means we’ll eventually hear an audio version of this conversation hit the SiriusXM channel of the same name.
These appearances and conversations about comedy stand-up are great for us as our hopes for an Eddie Murphy stand-up comeback. The more he gets in front of live audiences and gets laughs and pops from the crowd we hope the more it gives him the bug to return to the stage and make people laugh.
