Murphy was born and reared in the Bushwick area of Brooklyn, New York City. His mother, Lillian (Laney), worked as a telephone operator, while his father, Charles Edward Murphy (1940–1969), was a transit cop who also dabbled in acting and comedy.

In 1969, his father passed away. Later, he stated:

My parents divorced when I was three, and he died when I was eight, so I have very little recollections… He fell prey to Murphy’s charm (laughs). A lady stabbed my father. I never received all of the details. It was intended to be one of those crimes of passion when you say to yourself, “If I can’t have you, no one else will.”

Murphy was eight years old when his single mother fell ill, and he and his older brother Charlie spent a year in foster care. Murphy has stated in interviews that his stint in foster care influenced his sense of humour. His mother and stepfather Vernon Lynch, an ice cream plant foreman, reared him and his brother in Roosevelt, New York.
