Richard Pryor needs more memes. There, I said it. I see much, much lesser comedians with their words slapped all over their photos on Reddit and Buzzfeed. But why hasn't Richard Pryor had his day in the meme sun yet? He's got more material than almost anyone else. He also happens to be one of the funniest comedians to ever walk the earth. But there's a criminally small amount of memes and photos of Richard Pryor jokes and quotes. The man changed the way comedy was used. He did things no one else had ever done with a microphone before. Give him his due.
His social commentary is still very relevant today. Whether it's on race or income inequality or just how crazy life is (or setting yourself on fire, although that one might just be a little specific for Richard.) his genius still resonates today as much as it did forty years ago. If you don't know much about what Richard Pryor jokes did to the status quo, then you should do some research starting with this gallery of funny jokes and memes.
This is our attempt to give the world some of the Richard Pryor jokes in picture form. We'll go back to the drawing board and create a few more over time. Be sure to check back for more!
