    Richard Pryor

    Richard Pryor III (December 1, 1940 - December 10, 2005) was a comedian, actor, and writer. He was best known for his great impersonations, uncompromising examinations of racism and topical contemporary issues. Pryor employed colorful, vulgar and profane language, as well as racial epithets. He reached a broad audience with his scathing observations and legendary storytelling style. He is widely regarded as one of the most important stand-up comedians of all-time. Jerry Seinfeld called Pryor "The Picasso of our profession" and Bob Newhart referred to Pryor as "the seminal comedian of the last 50 years."

    George Carlin

    George Carlin (May 12, 1937 - June 22, 2008) was a stand-up comedian, social critic, actor, and author, who won five Grammy Awards for his comedy albums. Carlin was noted for his humorous cynicism and skepticism as well as his thoughts on politics, psychology, religion, and various other taboo subjects.

    Eddie Murphy

    Eddie Murphy was born on April 3, 1961. He is an actor, film director, producer, comedian and singer. Murphy is the second highest grossing actor in the United States. He got his start in comedy on Saturday Night Live and would later be ranked by Comedy Central, #10 on its list of the 100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time.

    Lenny Bruce

    Lenny Bruce, was a Jewish-American comedian and satirist. Lenny's forte was spontaneity and candor. On October 4, 1961, Bruce was arrested for obscenity at the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco. He would later be acquitted but this opened the door for law enforcement agencies to monitor his appearances, resulting in frequent arrests for obscenity. Without a doubt, his continued harassment by law enforcement had a direct effect on his death. In 1966, at the age of 40, Lenny Bruce died from "acute morphine poisoning caused by an accidental overdose." On December 23, 2003, 37 years after his death, Bruce was granted a posthumous pardon for his obscenity conviction by New York Governor George Pataki. Lenny Bruce paved the way for the likes of Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Sam Kinison, and hundreds of other successful stand-up comics.

    Chris Rock

    Chris Rock was born February 7, 1965. He attended a nearly all-white public school and was subjected to discrimination at an early age. "Rock's early bouts with racism greatly influenced his comedic material." At age 18, Rock was discovered by Eddie Murphy at New York's Comedy Strip. He is noted for his "raw humor and has no qualms about making fun of all sexes and races."

    H5! Loved George Carlin. All these comedians are excellent. Especially loved how Richard Pryor became a G-rated comedic actor when he was paired with Gene Wilder. Chris Rock is a talent that will grow even more in years to come!
