He will be missed
Wow, I'm shocked. You're right, he'll be sorely missed
O.K., before I start crying my eyes out over the passing of this comedic legend, just let me say that he was the funniest man who ever lived when he was at the top of his game... None a dem cats, chappelle, murphy, lawrence, jamie, tommy davidson... none of dem could hold a pair of the man's old dirty socks when it came to generating tears and laughs...
Whew, boy, I knew this time was coming, and it's finally here... Mr. Richard Pryor, from Peoria Illinois, I wanna thank you for being you, when being you was the most controversial thing you could be in that world... You were like our Muhammad Ali of Comedy, and honored us in every way... God rest your soul, brother, you were the best ever...
"and he was deep, too!" "little feets" "monkey paws" "mudbone"!!
ouch. <sigh> Many Thanks to You, Beloved Ancestor. You helped us to keep laughing over what usually affected us in other ways. You will be missed, but not forgotten!!
To the only true King Of Comedy.....

I had to check in and see what yall were saying about brother Rich. I too am hurt by his passing. I really feel like somebody I really knew is gone. Rich raised me. I know that might not have been the best thing. In the 70's when Rich was coming on TV everybody knew about it. Everybody would be talking about how Rich was gonna be on Johnny Carson or Flip Wilson that night.
Listening to those albums in the 70's was not appropriate for a 13 or 14 year old. But I listened. I remember once my mother stopping me as I walked out of the house. I don't know how she knew but she told me that I better not be listening to those Richard Pryor albums. I looked at her and lied my *** off and said, "Ma, I don't listen to that stuff." I walked away with her eyes on my back, trying not to snicker cause I already knew every single word on the album by heart. I was 13. If you had asked me to memorize Martin Luther King's " I Have A Dream" speech, I couldn'a done it. I barely new the pledge of allegeance. But I knew every single word of the stories of Mudbone, Cockeyed Jr. and Ms. Rudolf. I mean word for word. I listened to all those albums 1000 times each. Rich was the funniest MF in the world. We was laid out on the floor laughing so hard. I remember going to the show to see "The Mack." Rich was Goldie's homie, Slim. They made Pretty Tony stick hisself with that sword he had in his cane. It was too funny.
So, to say I'm sad about Rich passing is an understatement. It hurts. I'ma sure miss him. Fo' real. Thats my main man.
