Charlie Murphy DEAD at 57

Woooow


Charlie Murphy Dead at 57 After Leukemia Battle

http://www.tmz.com/2017/04/12/charli...urphy-brother/

Charlie Murphy, Eddie's older brother, and a very successful and popular stand-up comedian in his own right has died ... TMZ has learned.

According to Charlie's manager, he died from leukemia Wednesday morning in a NYC hospital. He'd been going undergoing chemotherapy. Family members tell us they're absolutely shocked because they thought he was getting better.

We're told the family would call him frequently, and he'd even joke they were calling too much.

Charlie famously co-starred on "Chappelle's Show" in some of Dave's most memorable skits ... including the nights Charlie partied with Rick James and Prince

I had to look him up. The first line of every obit is that he was Eddie Murphy's brother, and then they listed his credits.

Re: Charlie Murphy DEAD at 57

I had no idea Eddie had a brother.

Regardless, leukemia is a motherfucker. Lost a great neighbour to it a few years ago, and a friend has been battling an extremely rare and aggressive type for just over a year.

RIP Charlie.

And GI Joe got stuck... And GI Joe got stuck in the water.

And then the big brown shark came.

RIP Charlie

That's cold. I'm sure everyone here would agree it's a huge loss for Eddie.

Re: Charlie Murphy DEAD at 57

After seeing Charlie Murphy on the Dave Chappelle Show, I realized Eddie got a lot of his humor and sense of timing from Charlie, his older brother.

His Chapelle Show stories were the funniest thing of their era. The Prince one especially.
