I'll take my hat off for him. He certaintainly has the money to fill it. And when I say, "him" i mean his estate. And when I say hat, i mean bucket.

Actually his illness sapped almost all of his cash, that's why his family put out that dvd.

Default That Crazy Nigga.

On stage, Richard Pryor ruled. Hands down. No contest.

I never saw him live, but I remember seeing several of his concert films (especially Live on the Sunset Strip after his freebasing accident) and he was - pun intended - on fire.

Pryor's genius was his ability to veer from laughter to tears and back again in a look, a phrase or just a word. He talked about visiting Africa, and how he was never going to use the N word again. Brilliant, brutally honest & scary stuff. You could hear a pin drop as the audience waited for the punchline... but he was serious.
