    So many mainstream comics owe their careers to Pryor. Just look in the audience, I see Tim Reid, Sandra Bernhard, John Witherspoon and Robin Williams.

    That’s Marlene Clark, she’s an actress who did small roles in a few movies like Midnight Cowboy. She’s probably best known as Lamont Sanford’s girlfriend in Sanford and Son. She was also married to Billy Dee Williams for a few years. Billy’s got good taste, huh? lol

    I thought it was interesting that no one laughed when he said he had to come out on TV so people could see him and not be afraid of a black man. This was meant to be a joke by Pryor but people were a little too uptight to laugh or didn’t get it. Richard Pryor is one of the greats.

    Funny ole world ain’t it. REEFER gets by the censor but the word ASS….no, no, no we can’t be hearing him say that. In the end, he could only get in the white-money door with his act so watered down that he was a pale shadow of himself.

    He should have visited a Russian funeral: some women were not only crying their soul out, they were almost jumping down after the coffin or trying to hold back the men who were shoveling.
