Dave Chappelle honored late comedian and Chappelle’s Show cast member Charlie Murphy by joining John Mayer on stage during his concert in Columbus, Ohio on Wednesday.
“Today, I got some terrible news,” Chappelle said. “My good friend, Charlie Murphy, passed away this morning, and everybody in comedy is heartbroken.” The comedian and Mayer reminisced about Murphy’s legendary “True Hollywood Stories” sketches on Chappelle’s Show, with both noting they still use Murphy’s classic line about Rick James, “He’s a habitual line-stepper.”
After addressing the crowd he then asked Mayer to perform “You’re Gonna Live Forever in Me.”
Charlie Murphy passed away at this week at age of 57 after a battle with Leukemia.
