Charlie Murphy, Eddie Murphy's older brother and an accomplished comedian in his own right, died of leukemia in New York City on April 12th. He was 57.
"He was the best storyteller I ever heard," fellow comic D.L. Hughley said, reflecting on the many comedy gigs he did with Murphy on his radio program. "I'm sad that he's gone, but I'm also happy that I got to know him. He rushed home to be with his family after every gig, he did comedy his way and he died with gigs on the books."
