Richard Pryor is most often associated with his now legendary profane stand-up performances.  That style opened the door for an endless stream of younger copycat comedians thinking that Pryor's secret was his use of profanity.  However, that most certainly was proven untrue.  Richard Pryor's verbiage came naturally from his comedic flow.  A comedy that possessed an undeniable depth of humanity.  He covered many topics including, of course, race, but always there was that common denominator in his humor - humanity.  No matter what the subject it was relatable to everyone and his stage persona, including the language, was coming from Richard Pryor's own painfully honest and painfully hilarious soul.  To date, the greatest stand-up comic to ever live.
