Charlie Murphy was such a standout presence on Chappelle's Show, on which he told legendary stories of playing basketball with Prince and fighting with Rick James, we've been wondering how Dave Chappelle would honor his late friend and costar.

We… did not expect it to be at a John Mayer concert.

But the comic and the singer have been friends for years, so Dave surprised John's audience in Ohio Wednesday night when he took the stage to share the sad news with the audience:

"Today I got some terrible news. My good friend Charlie Murphy passed away this morning. Everyone in comedy is heartbroken."

Dave and John talked Prince, Rick James, and partying before breaking it down with a performance of You're Gonna Live Forever In Me dedicated to their fallen friend.

See the poignant performance (below)!

Such tragic news!

Actor and comedian Charlie Murphy is dead at the unbelievably young age of 57.

His longtime manager tells TMZ that the comic and raconteur, best known for his work on Chappelle's Show, died in a New York City hospital after a battle with leukemia.

Charlie was the brother of Eddie Murphy but made a name for himself as a standup and actor, shining in roles in The Boondocks, Black Jesus, and Are We There Yet.

He had three children.
