US Comedian Charlie Murphy, brother of Eddie Murphy, dies at 57

Comedian Charlie Murphy, a performer on “Chappelle’s Show” and Eddie Murphy’s older brother, has died at the age of 57.

Murphy died on Wednesday in New York of leukemia, according to his representative, Domenick Nati (via Variety).

The elder Murphy – sometimes credited as Charles Murphy – was a comedy stand-up and performer in his own right, but was perhaps best-known for his appearances on “Chappelle’s Show” on Comedy Central.

He made his big screen debut in 1989’s “Harlem Nights”, directed by his younger brother Eddie, but went on to appear in other films, such as Spike Lee’s “Mo’ Better Blues” and “Jungle Fever”, and also co-wrote some of his brother’s movies, such as “Norbit” and “Vampire in Brooklyn” (via Rolling Stone).
