Richard Pryor dead at 65. I liked his comedy and most of his movies as well. A couple of his movies were not that great but hey, it was Richard up on the screen. The one he did as Wendell Scott the race car driver and the one he did with Cecily Tyson where he drives the school bus are two of my favorites. It just felt that the one as the bus driver was closer to the real Richard as it came across to me.
He was in your face with his early comedy and gave you a new way to look at things. George Carlin was pretty raunchy back then also but got away with it easier then.
It's good that he went quick. But that's how he lived his life so what else would you expect.
