Rude, crude and honest

Admiration for a Comedian Who Knew No Limits ;

"The truth was an incredibly hot commodity in 1974-75," said Mr. Michaels, who watched as Mr. Pryor did two long monologues that night, exactly 30 years ago today. "The distrust of authority was at its absolute peak, with Watergate and the war, and he caught the wave."
I only just heard. I think the first time I saw Richard Pryor was in Stir Crazy, one of the funniest odd couple films ever made.

The truth, always a hot commodity and thankfully, we have the stealth technology of comedy to sneak under the radar of the thought police.
