It's never fair to compare siblings. But it has to be said: while the once great Eddie Murphy has squandered a decade's worth of goodwill, turning his explicitly hilarious stand-up routine and breakout role as Axel Foley (“Beverly Hills Cop”) into a diluted wash of family-friendly, box-office bombs, older brother Charlie has seen only a profile boost in recent years. Experiencing his biggest career success during the sprint of comedy brilliance that was “Chappelle's Show,” regaling audiences with his infamous “True Hollywood Stories” sketches, Murphy has hit his stride with own brand of gruff-voiced comedy. With the recent airing of his Comedy Central special, “Charlie Murphy: I Will Not Apologize,” Murphy is scheduled for an extended stay of hilarious anecdotes at the Funny Bone April 22-25. $27.
