I'm not much of a pryor fan - I don't think he needed to become so crude. He is originally from Peoria, IL and they lobbied to have a street named after him -but it was declined - I guess a lot of people didn't agree that he was a role model.

The man was a legend. The blue stuff doesn't bother me. Bring the funny! R.I.P. Mudbone!

Comedy Central ran a nice piece last night, it'll probably rerun.. Alot of his old comedy and clips, plus commentary from other comedians that grew up with him around.

I personally like the movie where he is blind and the partner if deaf and they wander about in all sorts of trouble. again forget the name.

Is that CC show the one called "I ain't dead yet, Muthf__ka!" If so, sadly, they may need to change the title.
