Marlon Wayans Auditions For Richard Pryor Role [Video]
If you ask any current stand up comedian who would they consider as the greatest comedian of all time, almost everyone would say Richard Pryor. Pryor appealed to everyone Black, White, it doesn't matter what your background is, he connected with every one.Richard Pryor is considered one of the greats because he wasn't afraid to tell the truth, and most of the time he spoke about his childhood growing up or his drug problem.
I'm sure both subjects were hard to talk about but somehow he found humor in them.
Over the past week an audition was leaked that show fellow comedian Marlon Wayans up for the lead in the Richard Pryor biopic.
As we now know Mike Epps has the role of Richard Pryor, but I think Marlon Wayans (who is my favorite comedian) NAILED IT!
