Riffing with Comedian Charlie Murphy
It's hard having your comedic voice be heard when your brother (Eddie) happens to be a comedy legend, but that hasn't stopped Charlie Murphy. In 2004, he burst onto the scene narrating “True Hollywood Stories” on Chappelle’s Show, segments where he described his (now famous) encounters with a coked-out Rick James and a basketball playing Prince. Soon after he tried his hand at standup, and he’s been on the circuit ever since. Before his Acid Trip Tour heads to the Neptune Theatre this Friday, January 11, we caught up with the comedian for a full Passing Through Q&A. The natural storyteller provided so much material that we thought we'd share some bonus excerpts.
