Eddie Murphy and his family are experiencing a bereavement. On the eve of one of the hospitals of new York passed away, his brother Charlie. The man was 57 years old.

Recall that the Murphy brothers were very close, and in his youth worked in various stand-up clubs. Then Eddie noticed, and he began to conquer the film industry. Charlie was never jealous of the glory of the relative and supported him in all the high-profile film screenings and premieres.
In an interview, the youngest of the brothers Murphy explained why he left standup. “It stopped being fun. Fun but ceased to be because it became more difficult to come up with something new. Mind you, this was before the Internet.” I thought maybe it’s time to take a break. And break just became very long. And then began the movement around the label Def Jam with other black comedians, well that’s another story. I was lazy and thought, “I can still do stand-up”. And now I’m not so far from that,” said Eddie.
