Burned my ass UP

Richard Pryor died over the weekend. He’s been ill with MS for a while now, so it wasn’t as if no-one saw it coming. He was one of the best stand-up comics EVER. I had a pirated copy of Here and Now and RP: Live in Concert on VHS, which I watched so much that the tapes actually wore out and became unwatchable. In the 1980’s I was convinced that Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy and Steve Martin were the funniest people EVER – Steve and Eddie consequently became remarkably unfunny as the years rolled by, but Richard Pryor never did.

So long, Jack.
