Rest in peace. Charlie Murphy, stand-up comedian and older brother to Eddie Murphy has passed away at age 57 from Leukemia.
According to Charlie's manager, he died from leukemia Wednesday morning in a NYC hospital. He'd been going undergoing chemotherapy. Family members tell us they're absolutely shocked because they thought he was getting better.
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.
