Charlie Murphy Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Charles Quinton Murphy was born on 12 July 1959, in Brooklyn, New York City USA. Charlie is a well-known actor, writer and comedian, and although his younger brother, Eddie Murphy, is more famous in the movie and television industries, Charlie has also achieved quite a lot.

Charlie Murphy Net Worth $2.5 Million

So how rich is Charlie Murphy? It is estimated that Charlie’s net worth $2.5 million. The main source of this sum of money is his appearances as an actor in movies and television shows. His talent for writing has also added to his net worth and made him more acclaimed. There is a possibility that Charlie’s net worth will become higher if he continues working as an actor and writer.

Charlie’s father was a police officer, but he also liked to act and perform at stand-up comedy, so acting was nothing new for the Murphy family, so it was no surprise that both Charlie and Eddie Murphy chose to become actors. Charlie’s career began in 1984. His first appearance was on the TV show called “Saturday Night Live”. He then appeared in such movies and shows as “Mo’ Better Blues”, “The Kid Who Loved Christmas” and “Jungle Fever”. This was the time when Murphy’s net worth began growing. Of course, these roles did not bring him a lot of fame, only later, in 1993, when he appeared in the movie, entitled “CB4”, did he became more noticeable and appreciated. Soon he was cast in the movie “King’s Ransom”, in which he starred with Anthony Anderson, Jay Mohr, Kellita Smith and others, and which contributed significantly to Charlie Murphy’s net worth.

What is more, Charlie worked as an executive producer of the album by the group, called “K-9 Posse”. In 2003 Charlie became part of a successful project called “Chappelle’s Show”, which aired until 2006 and had a huge impact on the growth of Charlie’s net worth. In 2009 Muprhy began working on his own show called “Charlie Murphy’s Crash Comedy”. In addition to this he acts in such shows as “1000 Ways to Die” and “Black Jesus”. In addition to his work in the movie and television industries, Charlie has also been involved in the creation of several video games. Charlie continues acting and working on other projects, so his fans will be able to enjoy his work for a long time.

While talking about Charlie’s personal life, it can be said that he married Tisha Taylor Murphy in 1997, but sadly she died from cancer in 2009. Murphy has three children: two from his marriage to Tisha and one from a previous relationship. All in all, Charlie Murphy is a talented person, who maybe sometimes feel overshadowed by his brother’s success, but is still able to maintain his fame.

3 Uncle of Bria L. Murphy, Myles Murphy, Shayne Audra Murphy, and Brandon Lynch.
4 His nickname as a teenager was "Omar".
5 Ran with a street gang early in his life.
6 Cousin of Ray Murphy Jr..

8 Ex-brother-in-law of Nicole Mitchell Murphy.

12 In his semi-true sketches, "Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories", Charlie plays himself as the nemesis of Dave Chappelle's character in Chappelle's Show (2003). Most famously in these sketches, Murphy was repeatedly bitch-slapped by Rick James (as played by Chappelle) and was crushed at basketball by Prince (also played by Chappelle).

#Quote
1 [on the Rick James story on Chappelle's Show (2003)] I knew it was something [special] when we took it over to my baby brother [Eddie Murphy's] house. I was like, "Check out this Rick James sketch." And we watched it and he was silent throughout the whole sketch, so I thought it was horrible. Soon as it stopped playing, he just said one word: "Genius." And then busted out laughing like, "Play that shit again!"
