Comedian Richard Pryor dies at age 65

Cocaine is a helluva drug, as Rick James would say. RIP, Richard.

"U.S. performer Richard Pryor, who helped revolutionize comedy with his profanity-laced and highly confessional social commentaries, has died at age 65 after a long illness.

Pryor's wife and business associates said he died in a California hospital on Saturday following a heart attack.

Pryor broke many barriers for black performers during his heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, becoming one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood.

He appeared in a number of mainstream films but likely wielded the most influence as a standup comedian, transforming the genre with social commentaries that were often shockingly personal and deeply raunchy."
