London: Eddie Murphy is “itching” to get back to stand-up comedy.
Before becoming a famous film star, Murphy was one of the world`s top comics.
And now he wants to go back, reports a news daily.
The Shrek star says, "Within the last six months or so, I started getting an itch to do it again. I started writing stuff... I was like, `I could go and do 15, 20 minutes right now.
‘Maybe in a couple of months I`ll start working out again.`
"But it`ll take a year before I`m ready to go on the road... It`s gonna take at least a year to get the rust off; 20 years of rust."
