Charlie Murphy, older brother of Eddie Murphy and a comedy stand-up and performer in his own right, has died.
He was perhaps best-known for his appearances on Chappelle’s Show on Comedy Central. He collaborated with writing his brother’s starring films Norbert and Vampire in Brooklyn. He voiced a role in the animated TV series that include The Boondocks and also appeared in the comedy series Black Jesus.
Murphy’s feature films include Our Family Wedding, King’s Ransom and CB4.
He is credited with appearances to air later this year on the TV drama series Power.
