Sorry We Lost Richard Pryor

He was so skilled at comedy, especially when he kept the act clean. I think he was a changed man, God bless him, but MS killed him. We will miss him. Goodbye Richard.

I was very sad to read of Richard Pryor's passing. He was one of the pioneers of stand-up comedy.

He will be missed. I can still remember laughing out loud watching Stir Crazy and Bustin' Loose on cable. And his performance in the under-rated film Deal Of The Century was a classic. Truly a great loss.

Yet for all the sorrows, I am glad we are discussing this now. As almost all of us know, Mr Pryor was seriously burned while freebasing cocaine in 1980. He was given a 1 in 3 chance to live and beat the odds. So we were able to enjoy his talent for 25 more years. Truly a second chance at life. And true to his form, Mr Pryor even included his burns in several routines. How many people can joke about what caused so much pain?

Truly a great loss to the world of comedy.

I'm so sorry for his passing -- he looked horrible when I last saw him, though...God bless him.
