The world lost a great comedian this morning when Charlie Murphy passed away from Leukemia in a New York City hospital. He was only 57 years old. A “Chappelle Show” veteran, he rose to success as both a write and actor, shining in sketches like “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories.” He also lent his writing skills to his brother Eddie’s movies, such as “Vampire in Brooklyn” and “Norbit.”
Let us remember the mark he made on the world through his best moments, quotes and reactions from people who loved him. RIP Charlie, comedy won’t be the same without you.
