Fans are Disappointed with Eddie Murhpy's SNL Appearance

Eddie Murphy's appearance was the anticipated return of the night, but the comedian failed to deliver.

Eddie Murphy’s brief appearance on Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special was the main disappointment of an overall successful evening for the classic comedy. After a long introduction from Chris Rock in which the comedian praised Murphy as his idol, “I wanted to be Eddie Muprhy,” Rock said, Murphy took the stage after 30 years and received a standing ovation. His overdue appearance lasted only 73 seconds.

In that short span of time, Murphy awkwardly addressed the crowd with barely a thank you. Fans are confused as to why Murphy tried to keep the cameras rolling away from him instead of reprising any of his legendary characters or bits from his SNL days. Did the comedian lose his jokes?
