Watch Eddie Murphy tell Ellen DeGeneres about his comedy youth, comedy fetish and comedy comeback

Here's that clip of Eddie Murphy appearing as a guest on Friday's telecast of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Murphy reiterated his intention to mount a comeback as a stand-up comedian (as Murphy told Jay Leno this week), saying he has begun writing new material, and figures he may have a good 15-20 minutes. But he acknowledged that it'll take a while for him to regain his stride and shake off 20 years of rust, telling Ellen and her viewers that it would be a good year before he'd be ready to tour again. Oh, he also admits to having a fetish for funny women (I hear that!), and says Ellen smells really nice. Aww. I'd love to be in Los Angeles when Murphy decides to start dropping in clubs and trying out the new stuff. Roll the clip.
