Good Bye Richard Pryor


#1

One of the greatest stand up comics that ever lived has kicked it today. Anybody not familiar with his work, give him a listen, you won’t be disappointed. His Mudbone routines were classic stuff.

Richard had MS. Yes he had a crack problem at one time… and acknowledged it; got over it and used it in his routine. Either way the man was a fucking genius and a pioneer of comedy. W/O Richard there would be no Eddie, Chris Rock or (insert favorite black raunchy comedian)
RIP Richard…

Oh man I loved him in See No Evil, Hear No Evil. That movie is just hilarious. I’ve seen some of his stand up though and couldn’t stop laughing for a second.


#14

holy shit i dint realize that was him in that movie. that movie is awesome. one of the best movies in my opinon. i only realized gene wilder was in it.

Yeah, but I knew Richard Pryor was the blind guy all the time. I take habit in remembering actor’s names and the movies they filmed in, you know - just in case. Gene Wylder is a rememerable guy too.

yeah gene wilder (sp) is an awesome actor too. i loved him in see no evil, hear no evil and as a kid i loved willy wonka and the chocholate factory. hell i still love that movie.
