Richard Pryor taught me that it’s okay to laugh at myself, no matter what I’d done.

There is nothing I can say about Richard Pryor that hasn’t been said before and by people far more respected than I, but Richard Pryor is, in my opinion, the best stand up comic ever.  His humor encompassed anything and everything Rich could think about, and let you into his life by letting the audience laugh at his own unbounded rationality.

Richard Pryor changed the way stand up comedy was done and influenced generations of stand up comics that will come.

What can I say that hasn’t already been said about Rich. He is the truth man! If a guy can get up in front of thousands of people and say he got head from a fagot down the street, that’s one hardcore motherfucker!

best comic ever! black, white or brown.
