About Richard Pryor
Born December 1, 1940, Richard Franklin Lennox Thomas Pryor III became one of the most influential comedians in the history of comedy. Few comics today will talk about their own careers without mentioning the inspiration they received from Pryor. A talented yet controversial man, most people either love him unconditionally or hate him passionately, but few ignore him.
Richard's wife, Jennifer, continues his work through a privately-funded project called Pryor's Planet. This non-profit organization promotes a better understanding of animals' rights and advocates the protection of all creatures through grassroots efforts. Pryor's Planet has saved hundreds of animals' lives and has provided countless animals with rescue, rehab, and placement. For more information, please visit http://www.pryorsplanet.com.
