"Though Murphy had long been on the comedy circuit, he rose to national prominence in 2003 as a co-star on Dave Chappelle's eponymous "Chappelle's Show." Murphy was also a writer for the sketch comedy show," according to NBC News.
Charlie's publicist has confirmed that the iconic comedian passed away after battling leukemia. He had been undergoing chemotherapy treatments for the illness.
The entertainment industry has been shocked by his passing and sent out heartfelt tributes across social media.
