Murphy pondered the idea on Jimmy Kimmel Live Friday (Sept. 9) during a talk about winning the Mark Twain Prize, and joking about Bill Cosby  in his speech. Kimmel asked Murphy if he’d be willing to hop back on the stand-up comedy circuit, and he didn’t exactly say no.

“I might,” Murphy revealed. “I haven’t done it in so long, I’m curious now — so much has changed — what would even come out? I don’t know what I would even be like.”
