Charlie Murphy Bio

Charlie Murphy

It can’t be easy to be the brother of one of the biggest comedians and movie stars of all time, but Charlie Murphy, older brother of Eddie Murphy, is an actor, writer, and comedian in his own right. Born in 1959 in Brooklyn, New York, Murphy first started performing back in 1984, right when his brother was climbing to the apex of the comedy world.

Murphy got plenty of acting roles early on his career, but no starring gigs. He appeared in a lot of movies including Harlem Nights, Mo’ Better Blues, Jungle Fever, CB4, Night at the Museum, Norbit, and many others. His TV work includes everything from The Boondocks and Martin to Are We There Yet?

Murphy’s breakout hit came when he starred on Dave Chappelle’s Chapelle’s Show. Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories sketches were some of the funniest of the entire show’s run and propelled Murphy into star status as he recounted classic tales with Prince and Rick James.

Charlie Murphy has since gone on to more TV and film roles and also performs stand-up comedy gigs throughout the country. Charlie Murphy tickets aren’t the hardest to come by, but depending on the venue can still sell out fast.
