Charlie Murphy's new Web series: Crackle or fizz?

Posted on

Charlie Murphy’s back, b—h! The former Chappelle’s Show standout launched his own Web series, Charlie Murphy’s Crash Comedy, this morning at crackle.com, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s online video network. His premiere sketch, a four minute talk-show parody with a flyer-than-Beetlejuice Lil Wayne, is the first of a series that will be unveiled every Friday for 13 weeks.

 

I found the humor a little stale. Mike Tyson jokes? Weezy/Baby Brokeback potshots? It’s nice to have Murphy back, but I hope upcoming clips have a little more edge.

What were your impressions? Have you missed Charlie Murphy and is he really “comedy royalty,” as the site claims?
