    LMAO Michaelmazid!

    Prior has been battling for his life for quite a few years. He burned over half of his body when he was "free basing" cocaine back in the 80's.

    He quit drugs & alcohol after that & has fought multiple sclerosis for a number of years now.

    He truley was a great stand up comic & comedic actor. I first remember him from his TV show ""The Richard Pryor Show."

    "Stir Crazy" & "Silver Streak" were funny movies. He starred with Gene Wilder in both those films.

    He also co-wrote "Blazing Saddles" with Mel Brooks.

    He will be missed. His wife had this to say after he passed.

    "He did not suffer, he went quickly and at the end there was a smile on his face," said his wife, Jennifer Pryor, according to the Associated Press. "I'm honored now that I have an opportunity to protect and continue his legacy because he's a very, very, very amazing man and he opened doors to so many people."

    Confined to a wheelchair in his later years because of his MS, Pryor lost none of his comic bite. When, last year, his sister said that Pryor had lost his voice, he rebutted her claim on his Web site, stating: "Sick of hearing this s--- about me not talking." Admitting he had "good days, bad days," Pryor declared, "I still am a talkin' motherf-----!"

    That's sad right there. He was a great comedian... RIP.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Chris Rock and Pryor are the best of all time!


    If you want a comedian that is great without swearing then its Jerry Signfeld.. But Pryor and Rock are the best

    Personally, as far as stand-up comics are concerned, I'd choose Ron White, Larry the cable Guy, Richard Engvall or Jeff Foxworty over Jerry Seinfild anyday.

    Seinfield is one one of the best comedy series of all time though!

    Re: Richard Pryor has passed away....

    i personally like Robin Williams that guy can crack me up! i never saw any of Pryor's stand ups so i don't know if i would have thought he was funny. R.I.P though. i love all the people in this world who just try and get us to lighten up and laugh. :salute:

    Thanks Josdin
