God rest Richard Pryor's tortured soul.
If I could pick one Richard Pryor moment it would be a scene in an otherwise not so great a movie, "Which Way is Up?". Richard Pryor the Black sub-executive, formerly a fruit picker, is invited into the Big Boss's office and at the end of the visit is offered, in front of the other excutives, the left-overs of a lunch that the Boss has just finished. Pathos, comedy and tradgedy all in less than a second. That was genius.
And now you know part of why I am the way I am ;)
