John Mayer, Dave Chapelle Unite To Honor The Late Charlie Murphy

Charlie Murphy, the comedian, voice-over artist, and older brother of actor and comic Eddie Murphy, died Wednesday at a hospital in New York City. I got some bad news.

The comedy world lost a popular performer when Charlie Murphy (57) died yesterday from leukemia, on April 12, 2017. Before the singer began to play Chappelle's song request, You're Gonna Live Forever In Me in Murphy's memory, the comedian issued a request: "Everybody with a cellphone, put it in your pocket".

Khalifa took to Instagram sharing a pic with her fans and followers of Murphy dressed as one of his most iconic and memorable Chappelle's Show characters, Buc Nasty. He wrote "One to sleep on: release the past to rest as deeply as possible".

Tributes are pouring in from some of the late comedian's friends and colleagues. After Chappelle's Show, Murphy continued to tour and appear in numerous films and TV projects.

Mayer was playing a gig in OH where Chappelle surprised guests by appearing on stage. I had the pleasure of going on a tour with him 10 years ago and we had an wonderful time. Thank you for not only being a friend but for believing in me when I was young in this comedy game. His Comedy Central stand-up special, "Charlie Murphy: I Will Not Apologize", was shown in 2010.
