Farewell to Richard Pryor

Comedy legend Richard Pryor passed away on Saturday morning, as many of you may know already, after suffering from the debilitating disease multiple sclerosis for many years. Pryor dies as a result of a heart attack in his home at the age of 65.

Richard Pryor was not only one of the funniest and outspoken stand-up comedians of his time who helped break down racial barriers and bring important matters to the forefront with his no-holds-barred sense of humor, he was also a celebrated comedian in the movies working on and in films such as “Blazing Saddles,” “Stir Crazy,” “Silver Streak,” “Brewster’s Millions” and “Superman III” among countless others.

Richard Pryor will be missed but even though he may be gone, he will still bring a smile and laughter to viewers for many years to come with his rich body of work.
