The world became aware of Charlie Murphy through the hilarious re-enactments of his lifes events featured on Comedy Centrals Chappelles Show. The skits detailed slices of the comedians past when he was nothing more than Eddie Murphys older brother. But what most dont know is that the sketches that took the elder Murphy from unknown dude to bona-fide star were the result of a simple lunch meeting. Thats according to his standup act, anyway, and like all things in Hollywood, the truth never gets in the way of a good story. Whatever the case, its probably a good idea to remember this: When youre trying to make it in show biz, the world truly is a stage, and when Dave Chappelles at your table, youd best bring your A-game.
