Goodbye Richard


The master comedian died of a heart attack today. He was 65 years old.

Pryor died shortly before 8 a.m. after being taken to a hospital from his home in the San Fernando Valley, said his business manager, Karen Finch. He had been ill for years with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative disease of the nervous system.

“We loved him and will miss you,” his ex-wife, Flynn Pryor, said from her Florida home.

Man, I didn’t expect this. He was truly a funny guy. There are so many memorable moments, like Richard walking with Gene Wilder showing him how to be “baaad” in the movie “Stir Crazy”.


Or Richard and Chevy Chase on Saturday Night Live doing “word association”.


It was all good.
