RIP Charlie Murphy

Comedian Charlie Murphy Dead at 57 After Leukemia Battle
Charlie Murphy Dead at 57 After Leukemia Battle

EXCLUSIVE

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

According to Charlie's manager, he died from leukemia Wednesday morning in a NYC hospital. He'd been going undergoing chemotherapy.

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.

Charlie also co-wrote some of Eddie Murphy's movies, like "Norbit" and "Vampire in Brooklyn." He co-starred in "Are We There Yet?," "The Boondocks" and "Black Jesus."

He recently toured with Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, George Lopez and D.L. Hughley on "The Comedy Get Down."

Charlie's wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, died in 2009 from cervical cancer. They had 2 children, and he had another from a previous relationship.

Charlie was 57.

RIP Brother Darkness

Aw man I loved Charlie's work. I don't know why but it always hits me hardest when comedic actors and stand up comedians pass away.

I guess those who make us laugh in the midst of this ****ed up world are just special to me.

RIP

My all-time favorite moment from Chapelle's Show:





He posted this the night before died. Choked me up.
