Richard Pryor Statue Unveiled In Peoria, Illinois

After years in the making, Richard Pryor finally had his statue placed in his hometown of Peoria, Illinois. Yesterday, with his son Richard Pryor Jr. and fans in attendance the 7-foot 1/2 statue of the late comedian was unveiled. Back in September of 2014, the now members of the Black And Brown Comedy Get Down tour helped raised the final funds to complete the new statue. Pryor looks to have had one more joke for fans.
