There was a time when Charlie Murphy was probably best known as Eddies brother. But then came Chappelles Show and its popular Charlie Murphys True Hollywood Stories sketches, which included the now-classic lines Im rich, bitch! and Cocaines a hell of a drug. That show may be gone, but Murphy carried on with his online series Charlie Murphys Crash Comedy on Crackle.com, which he refers to as sketch comedy without restrictions. Judging by the oddball humor in skits like Airline Security in 20 Years and Backshot Tattoo, its a pretty accurate description. Remember: The internets not censored and neither is live standup, for that matter. True, catching live standup isnt as convenient as sitting in your drawers in front of the computer, but fortunately, youve got the entire weekend to check out Murphys act as he takes the stage at the Palm Beach Improv (550 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach) starting Friday night at 8 through Sunday. Tickets cost $27.69 plus a two-drink minimum. Call 561-833-1812, or visit palmbeachimprov.com.
