Richard Pryor

And now word comes from Los Angeles that Richard Pryor died today.

"He was my treasure," Jennifer Pryor said in a telephone
interview with CNN. "His comedy is unparalleled. They say that you are
not a comic unless you imitate Richard Pryor. … He was able
to turn his pain into comedy."

Pryor had suffered with Multiple Sclerosis for nearly twenty years, before his death today. He was sixty five years old.

I’ll have more to say about this brilliant entertainer.
