Comedian Charlie Murphy dies from leukemia aged 57

Murphy, a longtime Englewood resident, died Wednesday in NY of leukemia, according to his representative, Domenick Nati. That said, I still think it's very cool to know that he had a hand in writing VAMPIRE IN BROOKLYN.

Comedian Charlie Murphy, best known for his uproarious stories about Rick James and Prince that became immortal Chappelle's Show sketches, has died, TMZ first reported. "Keep his family in your thoughts and in your prayers and keep a space for Charlie in you're heart".

The actor was said to have died peacefully in his sleep at a NY hospital on April 12.

He has said that he was so fond of Eddie and found him so amusing that he would not hesitate to confront people who did not laugh during his appearances.

Comedian, actor, and writer...

He starred in his own comedy series, Charlie Murphy's Crash Comedy, on Crackle, and in his own stand-up special, Charlie Murphy: I Will Not Apologize, on Comedy Central.

Wall Street's Charging Bull sculptor wants Fearless Girl statue removed
Eventually, the city gave in to the public requesting the artwork to remain in the Financial District close to Wall Street. Siegel said he hopes the dispute can be resolved amicably but added, "We never dismiss the possibility of litigation".

50 Cent took to Instagram, where he uploaded a picture of Charlie and captioned it: "R.I.P to my man Charlie Murphy".

"We just lost one of the funniest most real brothers of all time". "I would like to come out during his show and get introduced as him... and have the audience think 'wow, they really do look the same!' and then realize in the middle that it's me".

Murphy's final tweet was a touching one, and has been retweeted more than 31,000 times, and liked more than 36,000 times.

And while his relatives were aware that Charlie was sick, they were under the impression that he was getting better.

Charlie leaves behind the two children he shared with his wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, who died from cervical cancer in 2009 and another another child from a previous relationship.

Today is a sad day for hardcore fans of Charlie Murphy.
