Murphy responds to Hart, confirming a stand-up appearance down the road . Murphy said, “My plan was to try to to Dolemite, Saturday Night Live, Coming 2 America then do stand-up. then the pandemic hit, and it shut the entire sh*t down. Then i used to be going – the entire time last year i might are out performing on my act trying to urge my sh*t right, then the entire thing pack up . Hey, when the pandemic is over and it’s safe for everyone to travel out and roll in the hay , then the plan is to try to to it.”
