    Default Comedian Richard Pryor dies at 65

    Sad Day

    (CNN) -- Groundbreaking Comedian Richard Pryor died Saturday of a heart attack, his wife told CNN. He was 65.
    Pryor, who had been ill with multiple sclerosis, died at Encino Hospital near Los Angeles, at 7:58 a.m. PT. Jennifer Lee Pryor tried to revive him before paramedics arrived and took him to the hospital, she said.

    "He enjoyed life right up until the end," she said. "At the end there was a smile on his face."

    Pryor, who was born in Peoria, Illinois, on December 1, 1940, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1986.

    "He was able to turn pain into comedy," his wife said. "He let the world see it, and that was his inspiration too.

    "People said, 'If he can do it, I can do it.' "

    I second that Mikey. His wife is a good woman too, man. She's been through alot with Richard. This is a tough blow.

    That's very sad.

    What a tremendous loss, he was one of the pioneer's of comedy that paved the way for many.

    Very sad indeed.

    I hope his protege, Eddie Murphy pays him tribute by actually going back to his roots and being funny once again.
