NEW YORK — Funnyman Charlie Murphy, the older brother of movie icon Eddie Murphy, has moved on to perform in that great big comedy club in the sky. After a fierce battle with Leukemia, Charlie passed away on Wednesday inside a New York hospital. He was 57. Charlie, if you recall, produced some of his most memorable skits on the ‘Chappelle Show’ alongside comedian Dave Chappelle. Charlie appeared in several movies, including “Jungle Fever,” “Lottery Ticket” and “CB4.” He also co-wrote some of Eddie’s scripts.

Charlie recently toured with Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, George Lopez and D.L. Hughley. His manager told media he had undergone chemotherapy prior to death. Longtime friend and fellow comedian Chris Rock offered his condolences via Twitter when news broke of Charlie’s passing.

“We just lost one of the funniest most real brothers of all time,” he tweeted.

“Charlie Murphy RIP.”

  11. Charlie Murphy was not just a lucky brother of the icon Eddie Murphy. Charlie was a comedic innovator for the African American community. He was ballsy and a no bullshit man. It’s hard to accept your brother being more famous and richer than you, but I look at it from a different prospective. I believe Charlie was proud of his brothers success. His last 5 years dealing with leukemia/cancer were beyond horrible. We all saw it. A horrible way to die. We’ll all miss you Charlie. RIP brother.
