Charlie Murphy, Eddie Murphy’s older brother, has passed away after battling leukemia cancer while in NYC for chemotherapy.
Charlie is famous for co-starring in some of the funniest “Dave Chapelle Show” skits, including when Rick James partied with Prince. He is also the brains behind some of Eddie Murphy’s movies like “Norbit” and “Vampire’s In Brooklyn.”
His career doesn’t stop there as he is a stand-up comedian who has been on tour with Cedric The Entertainer, D.L Hughley, George Lopez and more.
Charlie’s Wife, Tisha Murphy, also passed away in 2009 from cervical cancer.
RIP Charlie Murphy.
