I had a great time. The people that work at Tommy T's were awesome and professional, Charlie was amazingly funny. I really enjoyed the show and I'm looking forward for him to return to the Bay Area

Description

Murphy achieved fame as a recurring performer on Chappelle’s Show, particularly in the Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories sketches. In these, Murphy recounts his misadventures as part of his brother Eddie’s entourage, including encounters with various celebrities such as Rick James and Prince.

Murphy also worked behind the scenes with the hip hop group K-9 Posse, a hip hop duo composed of his step-brother Vernon Lynch, Jr. and Wardell Mahone. On their 1988 self titled debut, Murphy was credited as the album’s executive producer as well as songwriter on the songs “Somebody’s Brother” and “Say Who Say What”.4 He also made an appearance in the video for the duo’s first single “This Beat Is Military”.5

Although he had minor roles in several films in the late 1980s (most notably Short Circuit 2) and early 1990s, Murphy’s first major role in a motion picture was in the 1993 film CB4, where he portrayed the antagonist, Gusto. In 2005, he appeared in King’s Ransom (alongside Anthony Anderson and Jay Mohr). In the film, Murphy portrayed “Herb”, a gay ex-con who is hired by King (Anderson) to kidnap him in a fake kidnapping.

After Chappelle’s Show host Dave Chappelle left the show, Murphy and Donnell Rawlings hosted the “lost episodes” compiled from sketches produced before Chappelle’s departure. Murphy has done voiceovers for Budweiser radio commercials, provided the voice for Iraq War veteran/criminal Ed Wuncler III on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim series The Boondocks, and the voice for a pimp named Jizzy-B in Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas video game. Recently, Murphy provided the voice for Spock on the G4TV’s Star Trek 2.0 shorts, and the dog in his younger brother Eddie’s 2007 film, Norbit.
