The comedy world has lost one of its gems. F*ck cancer.



Accomplished stand-up comedian and actor Charlie Murphy has died after an ongoing battle with leukemia, TMZ reports. He was 57.

Murphy's manager confirmed the news, this morning, adding that he spent his final moments in a New York City hospital.

The actor/stand-up comedian had reportedly been undergoing chemotherapy for some time.

Murphy, older brother to fellow actor and comedy icon Eddie Murphy, rose to fame after co-starring on Chappelle's Show in what is remembered today as the home to some of the most memorable and iconic skits throughout the show's running.

Some of the most outstanding films and series he had starred in throughout his career include The Boondocks, Black Jesus and Are We There Yet?

In addition to his roles as actor and comedian, he was also an accomplished writer, having co-written some of his younger brother's movies.

Most recently, Murphy returned to the comedy circuit, where he toured with some of his peers, including Cedric the Entertainer, Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley and George Lopez.

Charlie Murphy is BET family, he stars in Comedy Get Down, which is coming to BET this fall. We send our thoughts and prayers to his family, friends and fans during this tragic time.
