For those that can recall his early antics, this man was truly a pioneer in stand-up comedy.
In your face, here we go, like it or not COMEDY!
In my opinion, he brought about a new era in stand-up.
I am here, I have one chance to reach you, so...
Wake the obscenity edited out
So many of his performances
addressed REAL issues, but at a common-man, everyday level that truly connected with the audience. Like it or not,
all profanity aside, he brought it to you.
As much as I enjoyed, admired, and reveled in his abilities as a stand-up comic; his on-screen presence and versatility were second to none.
The movies such as "Car Wash" and "Which Way Is Up?", where he played multiple roles, were the best.
Hat's Off Richard Pryor!
You will be missed!
