Charlie Murphy, Eddie’s older brother and a breakout star from Chappelle’s Show, has passed away at the age of 57 after a battle with Leukemia. According to Charlie’s manager, he passed away Wednesday morning in a NYC hospital. He’s been getting chemotherapy treatments, and his death came as a shock as most family and friends around him believed he was getting better.
Charlie Was Legendary!
Charlie Murphy was a successful film actor, writer, and stand up comedian, but he will certainly be best remembered for his contributions to some of Dave Chappelle’s best skits. His stories about Rick James and Prince will go down as some of the best comedic television pieces in history, and the quotes will forever be repeated. It’s a sad loss for the world, but an even bigger loss for his family. He is survived by his wife Tisha and his three children.
