Charlie Murphy Passes Away At 57

Charlie Murphy, a well known stand-up comic, one of the stars of Chappelle’s Show, and the brother of Eddie Murphy, has sadly passed away from cancer.

According to TMZ, Murphy has been battling leukemia for awhile and despite showing progress with his chemotherapy, it appears it was not enough.

Murphy starred in some of the most famous segments on Chappelle’s Show, including the infamous Rick James skit.

His family is reportedly shocked as they thought he was getting better, and Murphy would frequently joke that they called him too much to ask how he was.

He was 57 years old.
