    He was a great comedian. My son still watches the movies he made with Gene Wilder.

    My absolute all time favorite was Hear no evil, see no evil. I mean, there was NOTHING funnier than a deaf guy hearing a murder and the blind guy "seeing it".... he will be missed. I even liked him better than Eddie Murphy. Rest well funny man.

    LOS ANGELES - Richard Pryor, the caustic yet perceptive actor-comedian who lived dangerously close to the edge both on stage and off, died Saturday. He was 65.

    Pryor died shortly before 8 a.m. of a heart attack 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.

    This makes me sad. His comedy routines were a little too much for me but I sure liked his movies. He and Gene Wilder were brilliant together. I also liked him in "Some Kind of Hero." He will be missed.

    I like the movie he was in with Gene Wilder where one was deaf and the other blind. Does anyone remember the name of that movie?

    Some of his comic routines were so hysterical. I am not always about the slapstick stuff but he always cracked me up. Just the ability to make someone laugh is an especially remarkable gift.
