The late comedian and actor Richard Pryor died with an estimated net worth of approximately $40 million dollars. That net worth was earned in recording studios, on TV, and in films. But the place he's most remembered for, and most revered, is on stage - performing stand-up comedy routines that made him perhaps the most admired comedian to ever perform. His material was both loved and hated for its fearless nature, turning its fire on race relations in America, growing up black, language, and Pryor himself. Nothing was off-limits for Pryor, who had the unique ability to turn personal tragedy into hilarious jokes and gags. Richard Pryor also earned a more mainstream kind of fame in his Hollywood comedies - many of them with frequent co-star Gene Wilder. His career off the stage, however, began writing for shows like Sanford and Son and eventually parlaying his hit comedy records into a TV sketch comedy show entitled The Richard Pryor Show. That show was deemed too controversial for mainstream audiences, but it is considered an innovative and ahead of its time series today. One of the most infamous incidents from Pryor's career happened in private - in a freebasing incident, Pryor inadvertently set himself on fire and nearly died. This incident, of course, later became fodder for his comedy routines, one of which can be seen in Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip. Since dying of a heart attack in 2005 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis, Richard Pryor continues to be perhaps the most respected stand-up comedian of all time.
Richard Franklin Lennox Thomas Pryor (1 December 1940 - 10 December 2005) was an American stand-up comedian, actor, social critic, writer, and MC. Pryor was known for uncompromising examinations of racism and topical contemporary issues, which employed colorful vulgarities, and profanity, as well as racial epithets. He reached a broad audience with his trenchant observations and storytelling style. He is widely regarded as one of the most important and influential stand-up comedians of his era: Jerry Seinfeld called Pryor "The Picasso of our profession";Bob Newhart has called Pryor "the seminal comedian of the last 50 years.". This legacy can be attributed, in part, to the unusual degree of intimacy Pryor brought to bear on his comedy. As Bill Cosby reportedly once said, "Richard Pryor drew the line between comedy and tragedy as thin as one could possibly paint it."
His body of work includes the concert movies and recordings Richard Pryor: Live & Smokin' (1971), That Nigger's Crazy (1974), ...Is It Something I Said? (1975), Bicentennial Nigger (1976), Richard Pryor: Live in Concert (1979), Richard Pryor: Live on the Sunset Strip (1982), and Richard Pryor: Here and Now (1983). He also starred in numerous films as an actor, such as Superman III (1983) but was usually in comedies such as Silver Streak (1976), and occasionally in dramatic roles, such as Paul Schrader's film Blue Collar (1978). He collaborated on many projects with actor Gene Wilder. Another frequent collaborator was actor/comedian/writer Paul Mooney.
Pryor won an Emmy Award (1973), and five Grammy Awards (1974, 1975, 1976, 1981, and 1982). In 1974, he also won two American Academy of Humor awards and the Writers Guild of America Award. The first ever Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize for American Humor was presented to him in 1998. Pryor is listed at Number 1 on Comedy Central's list of all-time greatest stand-up comedians.
