i clicked the link hoping that they would have put a picture of him on the news article [ to jog my memory ] and they didn't. that's kinda eff'd up.

He was really sick, I think he was suffering from MS. He was really funny, it's a shame he didn't do much later in his career.

Damn! I liked him alot! When him and Gene Wilder would team up for movies it was great. I believe he was one of, if not, the first comedian to be very edgy and use profanity. I also liked him in Superman.

R.I.P. Richard Pryor

Just come onto the computer for a few minutes to find this news out... apperantly from a heart attack.

Rest In Peace... you gave me many years of enjoyment (The Toy, Brewsters Millions, Blazing Saddles) and the old Eddie Murphy.

He was 65

wow this is sad, he was a great comedian. Richard Pryor died from a heart attack is what they said on tv. Sad, he was very funny and raw. Didn't care about FCC. I like that, he is also a god at comedy central and the secret stash, saturdays at 1.

He was great in "See no Evil, Hear no Evil". That's the only place I've really seen a lot of him. I'm a young one. Wasn't very familiar with his standup. :(
