Comedian Charlie Murphy dies at 57 after battling Leukemia

"Charlie Murphy RIP", Chris tweeted.

Scroll down for a look at what those who knew Charlie best and loved him most had to say about his unexpected passing.

TMZ is reporting that actor and comedian Charlie Murphy, who shot to prominence after iconic "Chapelle's Show" sketches has died. In relationships you never want to leave anything unsaid, our conversations before shows and after shows we all told each other and Charlie how we felt! He also recently garnered up voice credits in the animated series Black Dynamite, as well as Black Jesus, and is well known for co-writing his brother's Vampire in Brooklyn and Norbit films.

It is reported that the family would call him frequently, and he'd even joke they were calling too much.

According to Charlie's manager, he died aged 57 from leukaemia early this Wednesday morning in a NY hospital. After Chappelle left the show in 2005, Murphy (along with cast member Donnell Rawlings) briefly took over hosting duties for the show's truncated third season.

The move resulted in a 71% single-day plunge in Imagination's stock. That's where Apple might see an opportunity to move in and buy. That totals 110 pence, using a sum-of-the-parts valuation.


In 2009, Murphy lost his wife, Trisha Taylor Murphy, to cervical cancer. In 2016, he was part of the Get Down Comedy Tour alongside Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley and George Lopez. The segments were arguably the most popular of the Chappelle's Show skits, and James' on-camera denial (and weird back-pedaling) of the incidents only made them more buzzed about.

Many celebrities paid tribute to the comedian on social media. He was my first impression.

"After every gig, he rushed home to be with his kids".

Comedian Charlie Murphy has died following a battle with leukaemia at the age of 57, a representative has confirmed.
