Comedian and actor Charlie Murphy has an estimated net worth of $2.5 million. But that net worth didn't accumulate over night – Murphy has put in a lot of years in show business and no one can argue that he hasn't "paid his dues," even though he happens to be the older brother of Eddie Murphy, one of the biggest legends in comedy history. He achieved a smaller kind of fame than his brother, though, first as a recurring player and writer on the hit sketch comedy TV show Chappelle's Show. His most famous contribution to the show is inarguably the sketch "Charlie Murphy True Hollywood Stories," in which he recounted presumably true stories about his encounters with celebrities in the 1980s, complete with "reenactments" featuring Murphy and the show's star Dave Chappelle. Murphy's career in show business began in the 1980s, appearing in bit parts in movies like Short Circuit 2. He also had a career as a rapper with the group K-9 Posse, who could frequently be seen on the TV show Yo! MTV Raps. After Chappelle's Show, Murphy has continued to work steadily, with his own stand-up special on Comedy Central and an online comedy series Charlie Murphy's Crash Comedy.
