Adam Sandler, Dave Chappelle Remember Charlie Murphy

11:15am

Eddie Murphy was among numerous comics and film stars opening up about the loss of his older brother, Charlie, who died Wednesday after a battle with leukemia.

"My good friend Charlie Murphy died this morning and everybody in comedy is heartbroken." .

Next, we remember comedian and actor Charlie Murphy.

"Today, I got some awful news", funnyman Dave told the audience.

In one sketch, Mr. Murphy portrayed singer Rick James as an impulsive big-mouth who keeps spouting, "I'm Rick James, (expletive)!"In another skit, Prince is at first mocked for his frilly shirt but then shows his slick moves on the basketball court". And John, you are a sight for sore eyes'. "We love your stories, and we love your spirit", Chappelle said, as Mayer began playing "You're Gonna Live Forever in Me".

Charlie Murphy has further appeared in movies including "Our Family Wedding" as T.J, "Freaknik: The Musical" as Al Sharpton, "Moving Day" as Cedric and recently "Meet the Blacks" as Key Flo. Our prayers and condolences go out to the friends and family of Mr. Murphy.

"You just got so happy seeing Charlie, anywhere you saw him", he said.

The Daughters hitmaker happened to be performing in Chappelle's home state of OH, and the funnyman made a decision to join his longtime friend John onstage in Columbus to celebrate his late collaborator's life. "We respectfully ask for privacy during this time of great loss for all of us". He also co-wrote screenplays for his brother's films "Norbit" and "Vampire in Brooklyn".

Later this year, he is credited with appearances on the TV drama series "Power".
