Comedian and actor Ricky Harris, known for his stand up acts and his appearances in TV series “Everybody Hates Chris”, has died this Monday.
The news was announced by his manager, Cindy Ambers, who told the press that the actor was 54 years old.
The cause of death was not known at first, but the manager revealed Ricky suffered a heart attack two years ago, and apparently his health condition hasn’t been good ever since.
Harris made a name for himself in 1990 as a performer on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam. In 1993, he made his acting debut in the movie “Poetic Justice” starring Tupac Shakur.
After the news broke, his friends posted some tributes in his honor on social media.
