Richard Pryor passes away

I was very sad to hear the news that US comedian Richard Pryor has died at the age of 65.

Pryor had been ill for years with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative disease of the nervous system and he died sometime late Friday or early Saturday of a heart attack at his home in the San Fernando Valley, according to his ex-wife Flyn Pryor.

Richard Pryor was one of the greatest comedians of his generation.

Personally I'll remember him fondly for his comic movie roles in See No Evil, Hear No Evil and in particular Superman III.

RIP Richard.
