And like I said so many comics copied him that it seems blase' but he was working on such a different level at the peak of his skill as a standup performer that you can't even make a comparison one to one with those performers because Pryor is operating in his own realm.
I also think comedy in general doesn't get enough respect both in the movies and TV and on stage.
