The Original King of Comedy has died


Richard Franklin Lenox Thomas Pryor
(December 1, 1940 – December 10, 2005)

Maaaaaan… I dunno what to say. I was half asleep when I heard this on the news. I immediately jumped outta bed to realize that it wasn’t a bad dream. This man was a genius with the mic and although he hasn’t done much comedy in recent years, I will never forget all of the movies he’s been in or the comedy albums listened to. I’ve gotta go watch my favorite movie now. Along with that, I’mma have to go into my archives and listen to some old clips I’ve got on my PC and might take a trip to Hollywood Video and pick up some of the movies that I don’t have on DVD.

  1. Yeah..I was sadden when I heard this news.
    He indeed lived a full life that was cut short and was such an inspiration to so many.
    Eddie Murphy definitely paralleled him.

    I pray his soul rests in peace
