Funny and real are the best two words that I can use to describe his unique brand of comedy.
Charlie Murphy, older brother of Eddie Murphy passed away after a long battle with Lukemia on April 12, 2017. He was 57 years old. There is not a person that I know who cannot name one of his numerous contributions to comedy.
Born Charles Quinton Murphy, he was an actor, comedian, voice artist, and writer. Murphy was best known as a writer and cast member of the Comedy Central sketch-comedy series Chappelle’s Show. He went on to star in guest spots on other movies such as Lottery Ticket, Norbit, Paper Soldiers and The Perfect Holiday. I can best remember him as the gangster in Harlem Nights alongside the crying Arsenio Hall. His comedic career spanned over 2 decades along with roadshows, web episodes and an autobiographical book entitled The Making of a Stand Up Guy, was published by Simon and Schuster and is available on Amazon.com.
His infectious smile and great personality will be sorely missed. You can check out more on his webiste http://www.charliemurphycomedy.com/index.html
