Unfortunate news in the entertainment world as the word comes that comedian Charlie Murphy passed away after a battle with Leukemia at the age 57 according to his manager.

Gina Cook interviewed him last year when they were promoting The Comedy Get Down Tour that he was on with George Lopez, DL Hughley, Ced The Entertainer and Eddie Griffin. From the interview he talked about the tour and also about being Eddies older brother. Most of the younger generation knew him from The Chappelle Story where he talked about hanging out with Rick James with True Hollywood Story. For those who missed the moment, check it out below.

 

True Hollywood Story on Rick James with Charlie Murphy:

 

This is truly sad loss to the world of comedy and entertainment as a whole. What's even sadder is that he lost his wife Tisha Taylor Murphy of Cervical Cancer in 2009. Our prayers are with the Murphy family during this time of loss.
