Comedian Ricky Harris, who you might've seen on the show Everybody Hates Chris or in the movie Dope, died on Monday. Harris first became known for his standup in the '90s, when he was on the HBO show Def Comedy Jam. His other credits include the movies Poetic Justice and Heat and the shows The Tracy Morgan Show and Moesha. His manager Cindy Ambers told The Los Angeles Times he had a heart attack a few years back, though it's unclear what caused his death. His old friend Snoop Dogg, whose albums incorporate his sketches, posted a heartfelt tribute to Instagram.

Chuck D paid homage to the actor over Twitter.
Sinbad expressed shock over the death.
But Ice Cube perhaps summed it up best, saying the world would now be "a little less funny."
