Rate this Stand up comedian out of 5: Richard Pryor?




It's about time I did Richard Pryor. Pryor was known for uncompromising examinations of racism and topical contemporary issues, which employed vulgarities and profanity, as well as racial epithets. He reached a broad audience with his trenchant observations and storytelling style, and is widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential stand-up comedians of all time. He collaborated on many projects with actor Gene Wilder.

  • Richard definitely 'Blazed the Trail' for others, like Eddie Murphy, a carbon copy, almost! But they really only commented on African-Americans.
    I like Carlos Mencia!! Yeah, I know, many say he ripped off his jokes from others, but he delivers them well!! He made the point, in one of his shows, about not telling a 'racial' joke, unless you tell it to the ones that it talks about!

  • He's absolutely one of the most influential stand-ups ever. Prior's talent and success helped pave the way for later black comedians. His performance on stage comes across as very natural. This attitude causes the audience to relax and feel comfortable accepting his "abrasive" humor. As any good storyteller/comedian should know, to be successful the audience needs to like you, not just the jokes.

  • I wasn’t exposed to nor watched a lot of Richard Pryor growing up or even now. So, I can’t rate him. Many comedians and celebrities I’ve heard, say he’s a legend

  • In my top 5 of greatest comedians of all time! He was a major force in the comedic world, until he got all cracked out.. Stir Crazy was fuckin awesome! I've appreciated most comedians that have noted Pryor as an inspiration. I sure have myself.

  • He was one of the greats, for sure.

    I was shocked to see that he died more than 12 years ago, as I would have guessed far more recently than that, and I remember it being in the news.
