Eddie Murphy pays tribute to brother Charlie following his death, aged 57

"Thank you for the outpouring of condolences and prayers", the statement said.

In perhaps the most famous of those sketches, Charlie and Eddie Murphy meet up with singer Prince (played by show namesake Dave Chappelle), and a basketball game and pancake breakfast follow. "We respectfully ask for privacy during this time of great loss for all of us". In the recurring segment "Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories", Murphy would recount how his brother's fame brought him into the orbit of the biggest stars.

He also appeared in the TV series Are We There Yet?, Black Jesus, The Boondocks, and Chappelle's Show, and he hosted his own comedy show, Charlie Murphy's Law, in 2014.

Charlie had been seeking treatment with chemotherapy and his family including his younger brother Eddie, was shocked by his death because it was believed he would be getting better. The Chappelle's Show star went on to serve as Eddie's bodyguard when Eddie Murphy became a comedic sensation.

Variety interviewed Eddie last September, where he spoke lovingly about his older brother.

"I've been doing him since I was two or three". He was my first impression.

Once Chappelle's Show ended, Charlie took his newfound notoriety and hit the stand-up comedy circuit to share his stories, drawing acclaim from both the public and other comedians.

Fellow comedian Chris Rock tweeted: "We just lost one of the funniest most real brothers of all time".

Charlie's wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, died in 2009 from cervical cancer.

"After every gig, he rushed home to be with his kids", Hughley, 54, wrote in a tweet Wednesday. "He died with gigs on the books". "Charlie Murphy RIP. Charlie Murphy changed my life".
