Charlie Murphy's rapid evolution from "Chappelle's Show" cast member to top-billed international comedian, playing to sold-out audiences around the globe, has been remarkable. He has spent the past 8 years performing his critically acclaimed stand-up show and solidifying his position in Hollywood as a true acting, writing and producing talent, in his own right.

Charlie has toured nationally w/ the "I'm Rich Bitch" comedy tour, featuring fellow "Chappelle's Show" cast members Bill Burr and Donnell Rawlings. "Charlie Murphy and Friends" and a co-headlining tour with Mike Epps followed. Next, Murphy co-headlined the 20-city "Maxim/Bud Light Real Men of Comedy Tour" with Joe Rogan and John Heffron. Soon after was the headline tour "I Will Not Apologize" for which Murphy filmed his first DVD special of the same title. Distributed by Image Entertainment, this special premiered on Comedy Central in the #1 slot and is available in stores, Amazon.com and iTunes.. Internationally he has invaded Europe and Canada, an accomplishment very few American comedians can boast of.

A career spanning 2 decades, Charlie has worked with top Hollywood talent such as Denzel Washington, Halle Berry, Eddie Murphy, Danny Aiello, Terrance Howard, Gabrielle Union, Queen Latifah, Vanessa Williams, Rip Torn, Peter Falk, Redd Fox, Angela Bassett, Wesley Snipes, Jamie Foxx, Samuel Jackson and Sammy Davis, Jr.

His feature films include: The Guys Who Move Furniture (Will Sasso) Lottery Ticket (Bow Wow, Ice Cube), Our Family Wedding (Forest Whitaker, Carlos Mencia) A Perfect Holiday (Gabriel Union, Latifah), Kings Ransom (Anthony Anderson, Jay Mohr, Donald Faison), Roll Bounce (Bow Wow, Mike Epps), Chris Rock's classic hip-hop parody CB4, Spike Lee's Jungle Fever and Mo' Betta Blues, Unearthed, Night At The Museum & Harlem Nights.

Charlie's screenwriting credits include Norbit, Starring Eddie Murphy, which opened #1 at the box office, a remake of The Incredible Shrinking Man, Vampire In Brooklyn, Paper Soldiers for Jay-Z's Rockafella Films and Tales of the Dogg, an animated pilot for Snoop Dogg and MTV. His voice is a favorite as Ed Wuncler III on Adult Swims Boondocks, A Cat Named Rolo in the Black Dynamite animated series and Freaknik The Musical (T-Pain, Snoop Dog) as The Perminator.

Charlie has been a popular guest on a wide-variety of television talk, variety and news shows, including: Lopez Tonight, The Monique Show, The Joy Behar Show, and Fox Business's National Primetime Show.

In an effort to create internet content, Charlie wrote, produced, and starred in Charlie Murphy's Crash Comedy, a series of webisodes for Sony Entertainment's Crackle.com. His web presence is additionally bolstered by a multi-media advertising campaign for Nike's Jordan Brand, featuring Charlie as long time Jordan nemesis/inspiration Leroy Smith and the up and coming "The World According To Charlie"
