Richard Pryor taught me that it’s okay to laugh at myself, no matter what I’d done.
It’s Pryor. Never slipped.
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.
Richard has it all.
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!
Influenced a generation of stand-up comedians.
He’s always been a favourite of mine for his candor and ascorbic wit
best comic ever! black, white or brown.
the guy was like Malcom X in your face preacher to Bill Cosby, Martin Luther King non violent approach. Unlike the white comics, NOTHING is handed to us, we earn it.
