Chuy Bravo, best known as Chelsea Handler's sidekick on "Chelsea Lately", died suddenly in Mexico City on Saturday night. He was 63.
Chuy suffered terrible stomach ache Saturday and had to be rushed to an emergency room. His cause of death is unclear.
Bravo was born Jesus Melgoza in Tangancicuaro, Michoacán, Mexico, in 1956. He was the youngest of seven children, and immigrated to the United States at age 15, moving to the San Fernando Valley.
He began acting in the early 1990s, and had credits in films like "The Honeymooners" in 2005 and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" in 2007. It was his appearance as Handler's sidekick on "Chelsea Lately", however, that made him a star. He appeared on the E! late night talk show from 2007 to 2014.
Bravo revealed in a 2012 interview that he survived prostate cancer, which was treated quickly after it was diagnosed. He also shared that he was a recovering alcoholic and was nearly homeless at one point in his life.
