Today is December 1st and even though we lost Richard Pryor in 2005 let’s celebrate today as today was his birthday. I have followed him most of my life and for most of my life he just made me laugh. Call him controversial, call him someone that had his personal demons with drugs, but overall he was an entertainer that paved the way for so many of today. Today I solute you Richard and here is my best way I can a tribute to you with some of my favorite Richard Pryor moments. Now not for the kiddies this stuff has some adult language so be prepared is all I have to say.
Who said Richard never gave back to the kids. Here he shows up on Sesame Street.
One of my favorite scenes ever Richard in the wonder wheel. “The Toy” was a classic.
