Of all the comedians whose albums we listened to in that era when the comedy album was the big thing, Richard Pryor was undeniably the one who made us laugh uncontrollably and play the damn record over and over... And tape it so we could play it on road trips in the car... And memorize every damn line so we could amaze each other by reciting the jokes along with the record as we played it yet again. But not only that, he made us think about why we laughed, and opened our eyes to a lot of shit. We'll miss him.
