Pals John Mayer and Dave Chapelle reunited on Wednesday night to pay tribute to the late Charlie Murphy.

During John’s show in Columbus, Ohio, the singer called out his comedian friend, which was a surprise to the fans.

When Chapelle made his way out, he, of course, praised Mayer before tickling the ivories himself. Dave then took a moment to remember Murphy, who was most known for his skits on Chapelle’s Show.

“My good friend Charlie Murphy passed away this morning and everybody in company is heartbroken,” he told the crowd. “John, if you would … there was a night maybe four months ago when we were at Hotel Cafe in LA — you went to the piano and you sang a song and the song that you sang that night reminded me of my friend, Charlie Murphy.”

As John began to play, Dave said, “RIP, Charlie Murphy. We love you, we loved your comedy, we loved your storms and we loved your spirit.”

Charlie died on Wednesday morning after battling leukemia. He was 57.

His family said in a statement Wednesday night that their “hearts are heavy with the loss today of our son, brother, father, uncle and friend Charlie. Charlie filled our family with love and laughter and there won’t be a day that goes by that his presence will not be missed. Thank you for the outpouring of condolences and prayers. We respectfully ask for privacy during this time of great loss for all of us.”

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
