This will be Murphy’s first time on stage performing stand-up in 20 years. It’s also the actor’s second hosting gig since the 1985 MTV Music Awards. But Eddie is not phased by the pressure.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Murphy says, “I don’t feel the pressure. I get to introduce people and stand up straight. Maybe I’ll be in a couple silly sketches or something.”
