A sad day today as news just broke that Charlie Murphy, older brother of comedy icon Eddie Murphy passed away Wednesday morning in a NYC hospital of leukemia.
According to TMZ, family members were in absolute shock for they thought Charlie was on the mend.
Charlie Murphy’s name became synonymous with sketch comedy after his many contributions on the Chappelle Show most notably- the Prince & Rick James tales of Charlie Murphy…these are absolute classics! I don’t think a couch has ever been the same since.
Charlie is survived by 3 children, he was just 57.
